    Chester Gould - Dick Tracy Daily Comic Strip Original Art, dated 12-24-31 (News Syndicate, 1931). Here it is, bidders -- the earliest Dick Tracy original daily in our auction. "You're more interested in crooks than you are in me," whines Tess as duty-bound Tracy sidesteps a Christmas celebration in favor of chasing bad guys in this very early daily titled "Christmas Eve." The artboard measures 23" x 7" and the image area is 20" x 6". The strip is in Excellent condition, with soiling and tape residue in the borders (the art is unaffected).
