Description  

Hand-addressed mailing envelope with a humorous sketch, 9.5 x 4.25, addressed in Crumb’s hand to “Woody Gelman, c/o Topps Chewing Gum Co., Bush Terminal, Brooklyn N. Y.,” drawing an arrow from the city name to a sketch of a skyline and man in a suit with a speech bubble saying, “Hey I yoosta woik in dat town.” Crumb also incorporates his last name into the return address in the upper left. Postmarked San Francisco, January 25, 1968. In fine condition, with a small tear to the upper left corner from opening and trivial overall toning. Crumb illustrated a series of ‘Monster Greeting Cards’ for Topps in 1965. At this time, Crumb was on the verge of publishing the first issue of his iconic Zap Comix, which debuted on February 25, 1968—exactly one month after mailing this envelope. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
