    Al Jaffee MAD Magazine #548 Mad Fold-In Inside Back Cover Painting Original Art, Prints, and Magazines Group of 5 (EC, 2017). The MAD Fold-In gag is a long-running beloved feature in this irreverent magazine of modern humor. This one is by one of the original Usual Gang of Idiots, Al Jaffee, and it ran in the most recent issue. Which makes this the freshest MAD art available (these jokes aren't stale yet). The mixed-media masterpiece was produced on illustration board with a taped-off image area of 14.25" x 14.5". It is signed by Al "I-could-have-been-a-Barista" Jaffee in the foam of the latte on the bottom right. Text is printed and taped on. In Excellent condition. The piece also comes with two 16" x 21" MAD Magazine related covers printed on foam core board. These have edge wear and damage, with some tape residue. They are in Very Good condition. As a bonus, two copies of the current issue which included the Fold-In are included. Proceeds from the winning bids in this special NCS "Thanks & Giving Auction" will go to the "Direct Relief" charity, benefiting victims of recent natural disasters.
