Description

    Leo O' Amelia Original Sports Cartoons Lot Of 11. It would be difficult to overestimate the influence of sports cartoonists on our memory of baseball from the 1940's and 1950s. The cartoonists created many of the best-remembered images from that era of the game. Most newspapers then illustrated their sports pages with syndicated cartoons, not the later popular wirephotos. Because they were featured on the front of The Sporting News more often than other cartoonists, Willard Mullin, Lou Darvas, and Leo O'Mealia were the most prominent in their field at that time. O'Mealia's cartoons were usually six to nine frames illustrating the sequence of definitive motions of ballplayers batting, fielding, and pitching - leading up to a failure by a boasting player. The players were representative, not specific people, their actions generic, not associated with particular players. We offer a collection of eleven cartoons measuring approx. 10.5" x 14". Themes include White Sox, Yankees, and Indians pennant race, overexuberant rookie in the outfield, Underdogs in Sports, etc.
