1974 Wacky Pack Original Art 61 Magazine
Starting Bid - $500.00, Sold For - $4,060.00
Offered is the original art to the 1974 Wacky Pack spoofing the popular teen publication 16 Magazine. Of course, instead of catering to the interests of teenagers, the magazine has been redesigned as 61 Magazine, devoted to the health and recreation concerns of senior citizens. This artwork was originally sold in the famous Topps auction of 1989, where it appeared as one of the two artworks represented by lot B153. It has not seen the light of day since. The 11th series is a particularly well known and distinctive subset as this series features all the Wacky Pack magazine parodies. These artworks are especially noted both for the extra work and detail which obviously went into their creation, and the particularly amusing quality of the magazine cover spoof humor. This is an exceptionally clean and relatively early Wacky Pack artwork. Standard production-related remnants on blank reverse. Notes on the reverse identify its use in the eleventh series. Extremely minor flaking to a few letters is mentioned strictly for the sake of accuracy, otherwise the front is in Near Mint condition. The original artwork measures 5 x 7 inches and is accompanied by an example of the issued sticker. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$1,500. SOLD FOR $4,060.00
