10. Lance Burton
We kick our list off with Lance Burton, a magician who has had an illustrious career, though a short one, when compared with other magicians. He became interested in the art when he was only a preschooler and was selected to be a volunteer in one of Harry Collins’s shows. His passion just grew from there, and Collins noticing the Burton’s talent taught him many secrets that only true magicians know. Under his mentorship, Burton’s career took off, and he went on to perform thousands of shows. Furthermore, he appeared on The Tonight Show quite a lot of times to entrance the audience with his tricks. He voluntarily concluded his career in 2010 and completely disappeared from the world of magic, but his achievements are lauded to this day.
