    Description

    William (Bill) Gaines' Rubber Stamp Tree with 27 Stamps. A very unique item from the offices of MAD -- Bill Gaines' office to be precise! This is Bill Gaines' rubber stamp tree, with 27 rubber stamps hanging from it. The stamps run the gamut from MAD's address, to William Gaines' address, Warner Publishing, EC Creations, EC Publications, Payable, and "O. K. for Cash", and so much more. Bill Gaines used these stamps daily and were an important part of MAD's business operations. A real piece of MAD history! From the MAD Collection of Annie Gaines Ashton.
