Thayer's Magical Ballygram was a periodical issued irregularly by Floyd Thayer, 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 put out by Thayer Magic Company. 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]
