200 - Signed J.Buscema Sleeve/7 Frank Frazetta Prints The pen is mightier than the sword that swings heavy with this unusual and spectacular item seldom seen, however this is different and unique — first, a Limited to 2000 copies portfolio sleeve signed and numbered by John Buscema himself, with the cover illustration and signature by the legend, inside would typically be six original slate Conan prints by Buscema, however, inside this treasure is 7 Frank Frazetta sketch B/W sketch prints ( all shown in pictures) measuring 15 x 11 each, no further information could be found (trust me I tried), the prolific artist above artists and almost undeniably of the top ten greats ever accomplished countless works and sketches, I believe this to be a similar portfolio in the manner of Buscema’s Conan. So basically you’re getting the best of two art legends’ work — a signed and numbered Buscema portfolio sleeve, then 7 Frank Frazetta sketch prints. The portfolio itself does have wear and tear, wear to the bottom edge of it and two tears to the flanking top edge flaps, slight rubbing moments, all Frazetta prints are enclosed in two cardboard and taped boards with spreadsheet between both sides of prints, prints themselves have faint browning to edges and slight creasing and bend to bottom right corner.
