    Murphy Anderson DC Special #13 Strangest Sports Stories Ever Told! Cover Original Art (DC, 1971). Give Anderson the tiniest of spaces, and he would fill it with spectacular art. Four miniature panels, here, contain enough art for four full-depth covers. Anderson even predicts the rise of Virtual Reality gaming (lower left) -- of course, he's illustrating a story that dates from the 1960s, what with this issue's being a reprint title. The source was Strange Sports Stories, a Brave & the Bold pilot series that had been among editor Julius Schwartz' favorite projects. This combination of original art and paste-up blurbs is remarkable for the art itself, with conspicuous staining and handling wear in the pasted areas. Ink over graphite on Bristol board. The image area is 10" x 15". Flaws aside, in Very Good condition. From the Murphy Anderson Collection.
