This page of original art was drawn in 1955 by Jack Davis for Mad creator Harvey Kurtzman, who rejected it for unknown reasons, Viviano said. It was meant to accompany "A Guide to Better Understanding the Fine Old Art of Boxing," a rare story written by Fold-In creator and artist Al Jaffee. Instead of patching over the change and redrawing the correction, Davis redrew the entire piece. It appeared in Mad's issue 26 in November 1955, only the third issue of Mad in magazine form.
Somehow, it missed the many Mad art auctions that were held over the years, and remained in the DC/Mad flat-file archives to show nosy visitors.
