    Description

    Bill Watterson Calvin and Hobbes Daily Comic Strip Original Art dated 4-21-86 (Universal Press Syndicate, 1986). Bill Watterson Calvin and Hobbes original pieces rarely come to market. They are few and far between, and this is one of the earliest that we have ever handled. It's a great strip, and explains all those "battle damaged" model kits many of us produced as kids! Created in ink over graphite on Bristol board with an image area of 12" x 3.75". It is signed in the original work, and then personalized to Jeffrey and signed again just under the image area. There is a very minor crease in the far right side that doesn't even show through the matting. In Excellent condition.

    I have done a preliminary analysis and the total of the hammer prices was $67,550. With BP, the final figure was $80,722.25. That is against the total insurance value of $34,785 or 2.32 x ‘pre-auction estimate’. Incredible, really, so a big thanks.
