The Great Willard Mullin -- Baseball Illustration from The Sporting News

An amazing piece of original art spotted on eBay. Original art by Willard Mullin -- the greatest sports cartooonist in the history of journalism. This piece appeared in The Sporting News and was originally titled "Happy Hangover."

Starting off with a detail shot to appreciate the scope...Willard Mullin beautifully creates a Lilliputean scene of  big-time baseball owners brushing a bunch of players off their coats like so many annoying fleas.

Here's the "big picture" in all its glory...a breathtaking symphony of gestural cartoon art.
