Magical Bookie was a Magic Periodical published by Stephen Patrick from Fairport Harbor, Ohio that ran from April 1960 (No. 1) thru October 1974 (No. 48).

They were issued on legal size paper and ran around 6 pages. Some were only printed on one side, some printed on both sides.

It was originally printed on pink colored stock. A subsequent demand for copies of number 1 necessitated a re-print, but the stock of pink paper had run out, so the re-run was made on white paper. Thus a copy of number 1 on white paper indicates that it is a "second edition".[1]

Failing eyesight led Patrick to cease publications.[2]
