    Willard Mullin - "Simple Game" Cincinnati Sports Cartoon Original Art (c. 1950s). Willard Mullin's baseball cartoons are particularly beloved by collectors of original cartoon art, and here is a great example! "Mister Muscles" from Cincinnati, celebrating nine straight wins--with two over Brooklyn, represented by the "Bumbells" he is juggling. Mullin created the famous "Brooklyn Bum" character and the "Bum" became forever linked to the Brooklyn Dodgers. Ink and Conte over graphite on Bristol with an image area of 13.25" x 20.25". Toned with spot staining, glue residue covers the back, smudging and handling wear. Signed by Mullin under the figure and in Very Good condition.
