Is there anything better than Davis monster art from around this time? I come back to it aain and again. Someday I should figure out which cards I need to complete my set--I think I need six (and upgrades of two or three more).
I have these extra YDL 1959 cards: 10, 18, 26, 31, 32 (2), 36, 37, 40 and 48. My plan was to throw these up on ebay but if any of these will fill holes in your collection, let me know.From around that timeframe, I'd say check out his work on the Topps Monster Tatoo (sp) series and Topps Funny Valentines series. Also he did illustrations for the horror digest "Shock Magazine" which only had a 3 issue run.
Thanks--I'll try to dig up my set to see which ones I need.I have all three issues of SHOCK. The Tatoos are hard to come by--I've never seen a full set and don't want to take on trying to put one together (I did buy the original drawings for one when Topps was selling stuff off on eBay)MDG
MDG - Oh. Wow. How long ago did Topps do that? We lived not far from the Topps manufacturing plant in Mountaintop, PA. A friend's dad would occasonally bring us stuff - I actually had uncut sheets of baseball cards that I'm guessing would be worth a mint today (we all lost them in a flood). It never dawned on me that all that incredibly cool art from the non-sports cards may have been up there!!!!!
