I pointed this auction out back in December. Shocked it still hasn't sold.   :o   :P

You just have to lower your price a bit on this set, Bigtomi (even though it does have the "thin border" prototype.)

You might wanna jump on this one while the lower price is in effect! I'm guessing that the high price tag is justified by the fact that this particular sticker was found in one of the smoke stacks depicted in the illustration... complete with Virginia Slums soot!

Wow, I wouldn't buy that sticker even if it had been one of my kids that added the additional artwork.

This one has been pointed out before, as well, though not by me. About a year and a half ago, Jay commented on it:

I was in the room with Art Spiegelman when he wrote the Virginia Slums gag.  We were working all week to get that series written and roughed out, and Art was working on his book MAUS at the same time.  That ebay Virginia Slums card in the ebay auction above has a little scrawl on the upper right that looks very much like what ultimately became Art's MAUS character (but without the eyes and nose) .   Who knows?  It's in bad condition, yeah.... But it could be an important piece of history.  He was still working on the book when that series came out.

Totally worth it!! I'd pick it up for the upside-down 6-Urp in the first picture, but the gem of the bunch is the backwards Mrs. Klean...

Say it ain't so, George. ;D
The super rareness is too overwhelming.
