Starting Bid - $2,500, Sold For - $4,700
Presented is the original artwork to card #28 "Let's Go" from the 1966 Topps Batman card set. We think all collectors would agree that this is one of the greatest artworks in the entire Batman series and one of Norm Saunders' most incredible trading card masterpieces! It is not an accident that this is the artwork to a key card in the set. The consignor of this artwork is a longtime collector who for decades has had interest in original card artwork for his personal collection only if it was one of the best or the very best of the series. This is one of his great prizes. Batman took the world by storm in 1966 with the introduction of the wildly popular Batman television series. Topps joined the bandwagon with several series of card sets devoted to the Caped Crusader. This is a tremendous artwork from this classic 1960s card set, featuring a particularly elaborate scene including both Batman and Robin doing what they do best: responding to a call for action to help someone in danger. This artwork is one of the great classics of all Batman artworks, capturing the action and spirit of the entire series. The painting features both primary characters, tremendous background detail, and of course is the work of the legendary Norm Saunders. The gouache-on-board artwork measures 4-7/8 x 3-1/2 inches. It is interesting to note that the original artwork includes some additional areas around the perimeter which were cropped out by Topps when the card was published. Normal production remnants on reverse of board; Excellent to Mint condition. This is an exceptional and rare original artwork, one of the finest in existence, from one of the most popular of all Topps nonsport issues. Reserve $2,500. Estimate $5,000+. SOLD FOR $4,700
