Auction Spotlight #10

Xenozoic Tales (Cadillacs and Dinosaurs) Fax Header by Mark Schultz, undated, sold for $750. Source. Pretty soon a detailed description of what a fax is will be required…

Advantage Buyer. Mark Schultz art is hard to come by, and his output is minimal to say the least. This is a penciled and inked piece featuring his most famous creations.

    Mark Schultz’s creation Cadilacs and Dinosaurs became a tyco toy series and CBS television annimated series.

    Having said all of this, i do not think there are more than a few thousand people who buy cadalacs and dinosaurs materials, and only a few hundred of them are serious collectors and only 10 or less of them care about his original art. If those, very few would be able to raise $750 for a drawing. Of those not everyone would go after an unpublished piece.

    I say advantage seller. That is unless buyer is a true fan because the market is very thin.
