Incredible group of six original artworks from the 1968 Topps "Kooky Awards" set! These are the actual paintings used to produce the following six cards in the set: #7 Real Dog Award, 14 Hollywood Award, 35 Coward Award, 37 Most Popular Award, 41 Stool Pigeon Award, and 42 Best Dressed Award. The 1968 Topps "Kooky Awards" set features the extraordinary artwork of the legendary Norm Saunders (and also artist Paul Sutton). Each painting measures 5 x 7 inches and is executed on thin board. All are in Near Mint condition with standard production-related glue marks on their blank reverses. Five of the artworks have clear artists' plastic attached to the backs (which is removable) and two (#35 and 42) are accompanied by examples of the issued cards that the work appears on. This extremely attractive collection of artwork from this unusual nonsport set would be a significant addition to any nonsport or original-artwork collection. Total: 6 artworks and 2 issued cards. Reserve $300. Estimate (open).
