Here's some of the oddball stuff I picked up last weekend:
Bull of the Woods by J.R. Williams cartoon desk blotter / calendar from Vogt Roller Co, Chicago, IL in March 1953.
Bill Clinton superhero caricature on an Inauguration '93 button.
A counterfeit Bart Simpson saying "I belong to The Johns Hopkins Health Plan. Why In The Hell Don't You!" on an advertising button.
Nutty Awards #4 postcard by Jack Davis. Topps produced 30 of these in 1965.

Once upon a time, ink didn't come in ballpoint pens, and you often had to 'blot' or soak up the runny stuff before your writing smeared. Companies distributed blotters with advertising on, and sometimes they had cartoons. Here's 10 of JR Williams' strip 'Bull of the Woods' and one of 'Ripley's Believe It or Not' that I picked up last weekend.
