19.25x27.75" artboard (applied to slightly larger artboard) has India ink original art by "Dick Tracy" creator Chester Gould for Dec. 5, 1954 Sunday page. 13 main panels are featured, each having been cut out and applied to larger artboard, w/title stat paste-over (w/some glue staining) at top and separate "Crimestoppers Textbook" panel of original art. Art features disguised Dick Tracy in seven panels and villain Rughead Mumbles. Third panel features Tracy's "Electronic Phone Number Pick-Up" gadget. Number of panels feature shadowy inked depictions of Mumbles and cohort Happy at boxing match to nice effect. Crimestoppers panel provides tip for theater safety. Gould has signed first panel. Third to last panel has Chicago Tribune copyright strip. Large inked date at top left. Second to last panel has some spots of staining and is VF, while rest of art remains clean and Exc. Would make for nice framed display.
