Hi Folks!

I am no expert either, but I think Jim is correct.  It does have the general 
look of some things that Sergio did in the 60's.  My guess is that it's a 
sketch that he casually (and quickly) did for Jerry DeFuccio when they were 
talking about the character, just as Jim suggests.

I'm sure many of you have noticed DeFuccio's heirs and also Sergio's ex-wife 
putting stuff up on ebay from the 60's and early 70's.  It's all pretty 
cheesy, but there is noting that can be done about it, other than not buying
