1959 Topps "Funny Monsters" Original Card Artwork

Starting Bid - $200.00, Sold For - $1,276.00

Produced by Topps in 1959 specifically for sale during the Halloween season, the "Funny Monsters" series features artworks of monsters accompanied by amusing titles. Collectors commonly refer to the set as "You'll Die Laughing" from the joke heading on the back of each card (the "Funny Monsters" title is not printed on the cards). Offered is the original artwork (4.75 x 3-3/8 inches) for card #10 from the 1959 Topps "Funny Monsters" series, entitled "So You Really Think You've Re-Discovered the Jekyll and Hyde Formula, Eh, Twombley?" The artwork is beautifully executed with extraordinary detail. "Funny Monsters" is one of the classic "monster sets" of the era, and this card is an ideal representative of the set. The artwork is in Near Mint condition and is accompanied by an example of the issued card. Reserve $200. Estimate $400/$600. SOLD FOR $1,276.00
