On Saturday, March 26, you can get your hands on a piece of showbiz history.

Potter & Potter Auctions will auction off dozens of old lithograph posters of magicians.

Many posters are more than 100 years old.

A suburban woman found them in her basement after her husband, who was a collector, had died.

A 1902 Houdini poster, valued at about $20,000, is the rarest of the lot.
