One of my favorite LOA collections is the set of Christmas cards that Harold Gray drew to send to his friends and associates every year. He started in 1924, probably didn't send one in 1925 when his wife died in late November, and continued until his death. I am missing one card from the early 1930's and I'm not sure which year it is because he usually didn't date the cards, but if you have one that I don't, I would love to finish my collection.
There are over 40 cards, so I think the best thing to do is for me to give you an address where you can see them thanks to Hogan's Alley, the great magazine for newspaper comic collectors. Just be sure to scroll down when you get to the address!

I'm biased, but I think the cards are beautiful and it would be worth your effort to visit them. The other option is to go to Google and enter "Little Orphan Annie Christmas cards" and click on the first option--that might be the easiest way to do it if the URL doesn't turn blue when I submit it.

Thanks for mentioning the cards and writing that wonderful article. I borrowed one to post. Hope you don't mind.

The sun will come out tomorrow -- but there won't be many more tomorrows for "Little Orphan Annie."

Daddy Warbucks's favorite pupil-less redhead had enough Depression-tested pluck to survive 86 years in daily newspapers, but now the orphan's outta luck. Come June 13, her clear-eyed comic strip will end as her syndicate, Tribune Media Services, sends her off into the sunset. Canceled.



I'm sorry to hear the strip was canceled. I didn't realize it was still being syndicated.

Here are a couple of early Little Orphan Annie comics for old time's sake.



Feature Book #7 (November 1937)
Four Color #12 (1940)


Great books BZ. I had to bid on one listed on ebay. I doubt if my bid will win but just in case.

I'm a big fan of snow covers so naturally this LOA comic is one of my favorites of the series.

Those cards are very cool. Bill Woggon did something similar for at least a few years and it's possible those had wider circulation as he probably sent them to a bunch of contributors or people who bought premiums. As I recall, they weren't in color though.

You all have a lot of great Annie items! One of the things I like about her impact on society is that you can find all of the regular comic collectibles but also things like dexterity puzzles, tea sets, and embroidery sets. The graphics on the boxes of the early stuff by Gray are wonderful. Thanks for all the kind comments--I'll try to post a few more pictures tonight.
