And check out OUR NEWLY LISTED ITEMS. This is an incredibly rare original printed proof page for Donald Duck, the all-time classic Sunday newspaper strip by the legendary Walt Disney Productions and syndicated by King Features Syndicate. This is a proof for the August 3, 1947 (8/3/47) episode. This is a black and white proof of the complete strip page, featuring beautiful artwork with Donald, Daisy Duck, and an indoor ice rink instructor offering a lesson in figure skating! Donald tops his 1-10 with a Jack of Hearts!
The proof measures approximately 13 3/4" by 19 3/4", on smooth coated stock (not lower-quality newsprint paper), and is blank on the reverse side. It is in very good overall condition, particularly considering its age around 70 years old!, with some tanning and fading (the scan may not show, but there is some fading of the print on the lower left side edge, and in the next to last panel). Please note that this is NOT a mass-produced print, lithograph, or poster reproduction.
This is a very cool and rare comic collectible that you will hardly ever get a chance to see (but please note that this item is printed, it is not the hand-drawn artwork). This is a fantastic piece that would look great framed, and would be an outstanding addition to any collection. Please note that this is an authentic piece from the 1940's, not something made for a later reprint or collection book. We have been told there are reprint production art pieces being listed by other sellers that make them seem to be old and from original printings, even though they are not for example, older production art did not have the words on a separate sheet from the images. Those kinds of things were only done much more recently, using computer technology.
We advise buyers to be careful, as there are disreputable sellers tricking many people into believing they are purchasing items that are older and more valuable than what they actually are. Some sellers simply do not state their items are from reprints, while others make very long listings and put a tiny mention about reprints buried deep in the listing, and/or use a hard-to-read font color (like yellow) to prevent buyers from seeing this information. Unfortunately, everything else in the listing the title, pictures of the cover of the comic from the 1st printing, etc.This item is a genuine proof from the'40's, not something made for a reprint.
