1905 Bernhard T. Wall Print of a Hobo Bowler with Harvard and Yale “Credentials.”

Lot 620. 1905 Bernhard T. Wall Print of a Hobo Bowler with Harvard and Yale “Credentials.” Grizzled bowler in artwork titled “The Disciple of the Bowl: Watch the Strike” prepares to send the ball down the alley. His lone suspender (the left one apparently is broken) holds up pants with holes in them, and his shoes are shredded. A kerchief that is blue with white polka-dots is around his neck. He also wears a red sweater with a white “H” for Harvard and a blue hat with a white “Y” for Yale. He chomps on a cigar. The illustration is copyrighted 1905 by J. Hoover & Son, Philadelphia. Wall is a recognized artist whose illustrations appeared on numerous Ullman postcards in the early 1900s. He created a number of bowling illustrations. The artwork is about 16” x 17” and simply framed. It is printed on thick paper. There are some stains along the bottom edge, and the right bottom corner is detached. Except for the corner, the appearance is vg. Wall’s creation would have made a great cartoon character and, nicely framed, will serve as a humorous conversation starter in a home or office. Winning Bid $15.
