For the Baltimore club, see Yogi Magic Club

Yogi Club was a magic organization in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania founded in 1907 to "promote harmony among those interested in Magic and to further the elevation of the Magicians Art." and "to cooperate in the suppression of unwanted exposures."

There were sixteen charter members with founding members including Theodore DeLand, Carl Brema and C. Victor Dealy.

The club met at Dealy's home who had fitted out his basement as a magic room and stage which he called "Le Petite Theatre".

Reports of the club could be found in the Combined Magical Club Bulletin, a magic periodical for Combined Magical Clubs of America.

The club eventually disbanded when Dealy was struck by an auto near his home and later died. The members would go on to be founders of S.A.M. Assembly #4, I.B.M. Ring 6, The Conjurors Apprentices, and other clubs in the Philadelphia area.
