    S. Clay Wilson - "The Pirates Pay Day Pin-Up Original Art (1967). One of the rarest and most sought-after items by Underground legend S. Clay Wilson is his near-impossible-to-find portfolio of drawings, printed in Lawrence, Kansas by Charlie Plymell (print run = 100) before both made the move to San Francisco. Well, here's something even better than that -- an original page from that celebrated portfolio! It's one of Wilson's classic pirate portraits, a subject matter that Wilson had explored since the time of his earliest childhood drawings; this example represents the first of many to see print and be unleashed upon the Underground Comix market. This is an incredible find for S. Clay collectors; expect heavy bidding on this item! The art has been drawn on sketchbook paper measuring 13.75" x 11"; aside from a very small tear that does not enter the image area, this piece is in Excellent condition.
