    Description

    Herbert Hoover and Al Smith: Original Boxing Cartoons. Double matted and framed pair of 11" x 7.5" ink and applied-photo cartoons showing a boxing match between 1928 "heavyweight" contenders Al Smith and Herbert Hoover. These are inspired by the comic strips of the period, especially Popeye. In the first cartoon, a seemingly confident Smith rests on a stool, awaiting the next round. In the second cartoon, he is dealt a knockout punch. A unique, fun piece from the election of 1928.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
