1977 Topps Back of Card Cartoon Artworks (4)

Starting Bid - $100, Sold For - $180

Collection of four Topps cartoon artworks used in the production of the 1977 Topps baseball series. These are the actual cartoon artworks which appear on the backs of the standard 1977 Topps baseball card series, adding a little humor and extra content to the reverses of the cards, as was standard practice for many Topps sets. Each of the four original ink artworks is executed on thin board stock measuring 3.5 x 5.25 inches and is accompanied by final-issue versions of each card, ideal for display together. The four artworks are for cards #123 Fred Stanley (New York Yankees), 227 Joe Sambito (Houston Astros), 544 Gary Ross (California Angels), and 646 Andres Mora (Baltimore Orioles). The cartoons on these cards reference notable Hall of Famers Bob Feller, Whitey Ford, and Babe Ruth. These artworks would be very impressive displayed with their respective published cards. All are in Excellent to Near Mint condtion, with masking tape affixed to the reverse edge of each artwork, related to production use and not affecting the artwork. Total: 4 artworks. Reserve $100. Estimate (open). SOLD FOR $180
