Sam Gross "Frog Legs" Original Cartoon for Sale


Originally published in the National Lampoon in 1970, Sam Gross' "Frog Legs" original drawing is up for sale on eBay. The bids start at $20,000.

This is a seminal drawing. A perennial favorite, it's a classic gag cartoon that defines Gross and this is a unique opportunity to own it.

Hat tip to Gregory Kogan.

UPDATE December 10, 2010: it sold! One bid, for $20,000.

Surely one of the greatest gag cartoons of all time.

I have this very cartoon (yeah, a reprint) signed personally by my friend Sam and it's hanging proudly in my studio. He did draw a little frog on the reprint. I'm selling it for only $10,000. HAHA!

It is a classic.

Sam Gross' work belongs in the MOMA, period.
