    Rick Hackney Sir Bagby Daily Comic Strip Original Art Group of 25 (Bell McClure Syndicate, 1959-64). A large group of 25 dailies from this charming comic strip that never met a pun it didn't like! The jokes are clever and the art is cute. Many of these do not have a year date but do run in small sequences. The group includes: 4-15-59 through 4-23-59 (excluding Sundays); 8-3-64 through 8-11-64 (excluding Sundays); and then there are the ones with no year: 1-1, 1-2, 1-3, 1-4, 1-8, 1-11, 1-28, 1-30, and 4-18. This strip ran from 1959 to 1966, so these are some of the earliest and last in the same group. Created in ink on Bristol board, they have an approximate image area of 18" x 5" each. Condition varies slightly, with slight tanning and handling on most, some have paste-up text or art corrections that are discolored, and many syndicate strips have slipped off. Overall they are in Very Good condition.
