eBay: Some Willard Mullin Trays- The Brooklyn Bum Turns into the Tennis Bum

I love the artwork of Willard Mullin.  I especially love his depiction of the Brooklyn Dodgers mascot- the "Bum".  As you may already know, I take every opportunity to highlight and feature his works on this blog when I run into them.  To see those other post go here.

Shown here is are 3 different ceramic (I think) commemorative trays produced in 1974 depicting the Brooklyn "Bum" playing tennis.  The "Tennis Bum", as he is known.  They were made by Delano Studios.  I do not know how many different trays exist in the series, and I think it's likely more exist.

On the reverse is an inscription noting that Mullin was honored (in 1971) by the National Cartoonist Society as the Sports Cartoonist of the Century.  That's a well deserved distinction.


Here are the other 2 trays; Service and Out!.
