STEVE SWENSON:
Just a treat that recently came to light on eBay; it's nice to know there's still treasures like this out there to be discovered. Tissue paper, 9 X 12 inches, note on left side seems to read "Show them proof of Letraset". Scanned at 1200 dpi but I had to reduce file size by 50% to get it to email properly. The paper's pretty frail, hopefully I'll never have to scan it again.

As a fan, it's a kick to find (and buy) something like this, all these years later given when this must have been sold by Dave all those years ago.

But as with the #11 hand-colored cover and some of the other things collector's have, I wonder how much was lost over the years, or purchased 'spur of the moment' and forgotten as the buyers moved on to other interests.

And I have to wonder: why use tissue paper?
