DescriptionWillard Mullin - Sports Cartoon Original Art, (undated). Willard Mullin's baseball cartoons are particularly beloved by collectors of original cartoon art, and here is a real winner! A New York Yankee, the "Beau of the Bronx," commands the limelight to such an extent, he has to summon his clout to just get his opponent, the faceless guy from Cincinnati, past a guard and into the ballpark! A brilliant draftsman, Willard Mullin helped modernize the field of sports cartooning by combining spot-on portraiture with a healthy dose of cartoonish exaggeration. Willard Mullin created the famous "Brooklyn Bum" character and the "Bum" became forever linked to the Brooklyn Dodgers. Mullin was nick-named the "Dean of Sports Cartooning," and he inspired a legion of sports cartoonists, including Karl Hubenthal, Gene Basset, and Len Hollreiser. The image area of this cartoon measures 13.5" x 16", and the art is in Excellent condition. Hit a home run, with a winning bid on this champ! From the Collection of Gill Fox.
