If you know who did the art (if any), please let us know.
Important Added Info: Note that the window card was folded across the center at one time. Because the poster has condition issues, we can't re-fold the window card prior to mailing.

Condition: good to very good. The card was folded across the middle and there were many creases along that fold and some creases, scuffs, and a few dot stains scattered in the image, with a couple of stains in Cooper's hat. There was a tear in the bottom left corner that completely separated that corner. Someone took heavy tape and put it on the back of the middle of the card, and also put it on the back of the bottom left corner, and put some blue color in the separation of the tear at bottom left.
