Hunt Auctions: Willard Mulling Drawings of Leo Durocher & the Brooklyn Bum

Hunt Auctions is having a very busy month.  They had two different auctions running at the same time, and both of them are closing this week.

Still ongoing is their monthly internet sports memorabilia auction that closes tomorrow, and it includes an original Willard Mullin drawing that I had to share here.  See it below.  It is from 1948 and was published in the Sporting News.  It features Dodgers skipper Leo Durocher, who was recently reinstated as the manager of the ballclub.  He is drawn fielding a bunch of questions from eager reporters in his first press conference, but answers back with a "No Comment."  I guess he didn't get the memo that a press conference was for answering questions.

This is an original drawing that was in Hunt Auctions 9th Annual Louisville Slugger Museum auction that closed just a few days ago.  It is thought to be a Willard Mullin original, but has not been signed.  Nevertheless, I must say it has quickly become one of my favorites.  That mischievous look gets me every time.
