Addams, Charles

Price: $6,500.00

Description: A man's visit to the fortune teller.

Comment: During his period of greatest popularity, Addams received commissions from a lot of advertisers, particularly in connection to his works for The New Yorker. Here's Chivas Regal stepping up to the plate. Very savvy marketing really… I would bet (currently and at the time, fifty plus years ago) that there was scarcely a reader of the magazine out there who didn't read all the cartoons. An advertisement masquerading as a cartoon was a sure fire way to get the public's attention. A full copy of the magazine is included with the purchase.

Price: $6,500 (+ $150 domestic shipping)
