    Wally Wood - Topps Nasty Notes #19 Original Art (Topps, 1967). If someone you detest wears braces, you'll love this item! Wally Wood pulls off yet another insult with this one. This card, #19 in the series, states "Under ultraviolet light we dance/it lights up all our faces/but yours shines brighter than the rest.../I'm blinded by your braces." This art is two pages that were joined together to print the four-page note. Each page measures 11" x 16", and is in Excellent condition. The lettering is hand-drawn by Wood, and it's an integral, expertly-rendered part of the design. Humor art by one of the legendary mainstays of Mad is always highly prized, so get your bid in early on this gem!

    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.
