This beautiful design by Mouse and Kelley for the 78th poster in the Avalon series, is simple stunning. The design is based on a sculpture by Adolph Weinman, a famous early Twentieth Century artist, whose name also appears in the "artist" credit on the CGC slab at the top of the poster. The model's name posing as the angel was Audrey Munson, who also had a movie career. Her image exhibited on a rich blue background is incredibly tasteful. A 9.9 Graded Avalon poster that needs to be seen in person to be fully appreciated. A lower 9.8 graded example reached $3000 in our February 2021 auction! 

 

We have explained that demand outweighs supply 1000 to 1 when it comes to the tiny fraction of posters that have earned a grade over 9.8. It will take an imaginative bid to prevail victorious on this one!
