Cartoonists lend talent to Christmas Seals

2001-2 Ray Billingsley’s Kwanzaa American Lung Assn Southeast FL 1955 Li'l Abner Poster by Al Capp, for National Tuberculosis Assn 1958 Bill Zaboly's Popeye advert for Christmas Seals, autographed proof

Cartoonists have lent their talents to Christmas Seals many times over the years. The most recent I know of is (Green's #2001-T12) Ray Billingsley's Kwanzaa issue of Southeast Florida, American Lung Association. This seal was used in 2001-2 and was the first and only (so far) instance of an ALA Kwanzza seal. Also, this is the only instance of a cartoonist's work being featured on a Christmas Seal. Four designs, self-adhesive, straight die cut. Featuring Billingsley’s comic strip character, “Curtis”.

In 1955 The National Tuberculosis Association had Al Capp create a Li'l Abner Christmas Seal poster.

In 1958 The National Tuberculosis Association had Bela P. Zaboly, aka Bill Zaboly create a Popeye Christmas Seal Advertisement. Illustrated here is an autographed proof.
