Thayer's Magical Ballygram was a periodical issued irregularly by Floyd Thayer for the Thayer Magic Company, as a substitute for his Thayer's Magical Bulletin in order to keep customers posted.

Over the years, it was released in a variety of formats. The first two issues were three 8" x 10" mimeographed pages printed on both sides. Most of the subsequent issues were in 9 1/2" x 6 1/2" format and consisting of four to six pages. Many of the early Christmas issues had colored covers. Number 48 appeared in 1933 and was tabloid size consisting of 4 pages. 59 and 60 were in printed 8" x 10" format.

In all, 83 issues were published. Later Rudy Roxo put out two undated issues from Traverse City, Michigan that were on colored stock in standard format consisting of eight pages each.

A complete file, therefore, consists of 85 issues.[1]
