1934 R135 National Chicle Skybirds Amelia Earhart Original Artwork

Here’s the original artwork used for the 1934 R135 National Chicle Skybirds #48 Amelia Earhart card.

Mastro auctioned it off in their April 2004 catalog. The painted piece was described as rendered on the 4-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ lower-left area of a 6″ x 7″ artists’ board with handwritten editorial notes in the margins. The back is blank and has some adhesive residue on it.

After I shared the piece on social media, Number5TypeCard shared the following photo of the collectible from the 2015 National, which was for sale for $15k.
