1991 Boris Vallejo Autographed Card Title: Diving by Comic Images

Boris Vallejo started painting at the age of 13 and by the age of 16 he started to get paid for it. After the Peruvian born painter immigrated to the United States in 1964 he began an extraordinary career of producing high quality artwork for just about every major sci-fi and fantasy genre publishing company out there. Considered one of the best fantasy painters of our time his artwork can be found gracing the covers of popular paperback novel series such as Battletech, Conan, Doc Savage, Flash Gordon, Red Sonja, Star Trek and Tarzan; on magazines for Heavy Metal, National Lampoon, Psycho, Realms of Fantasy, and Vampirella; on comic books for Conan Saga, Prime, Savage Tales, Skaar Son of Hulk, Vampire Tales, and Wolverine; on movie posters for Aqua Teen Hunger Force Colon Movie Film for Theaters, Barbarella, Deathstalker, The Empire Strikes Back, Knightriders, National Lampoon’s Vacation, Q and The White Buffalo; and on trading cards of DC Master Series, Marvel Masterpieces, Spike: The Complete Story, Star Wars Galaxy and several other fantasy series under his own name.

In 1991 Comic Images published a series of trading cards titled Boris featuring the painters astonishing artwork. During the second run in the production of the trading card series they produced an extremely rare chase card featuring the piece titled Diving which was autographed by Boris Vallejo himself.

Parts of the edges have started to flake and I am unsure why, however, I have noticed this as a trend among certain cards that I have produced by Comic Images.

If you are interested in this item featuring the work and autograph of one of the best fantasy painters of our time, Boris Vallejo, you can find it on… Will be posting soon.

I've been a huge comic nerd for a long time. It was my dad who first introduced me to comics when I was very young. He gave me his small collection of comics at the time and ever since then I’ve continued to add to it. Over the years I have collected hundreds of comics, toy figures, and other memorabilia. And though I would really love to hang on to them, due to unfortunate circumstances I have to let them go. *sigh* So, the purpose of this blog will be mainly to showcase what I have up for sale on eBay. Most of the items will be comic related memorabilia but I also have a few other “types” of collectables that I hope to be getting rid of as well. And every once in a while in between the post of what I have for sell I may just post some of the crazy ideas that pop-up in my head which of course you can simply choose to ignore. Thanks for stopping by.
