Roosevelt Bears, The by Paul Piper,  V. Floyd Campbell & RK Culver (1240-) - An obscure but historically important strip, The Roosevelt Bears was the epitome of pop culture in the early 20th century.   Drawn from the popular depiction of the president of the day, Theodore Roosevelt, the Bears was a high quality sunday-only page showing a family/group of bears encountering scenes of modern life (most of which were actually enountered in Roosevelts life).   The storylines were often given in verse which added to the charm of the pieces.   Inspite the presidential depiction, the pages are not intended to be serious political commentary.  They are light satire, with virtually no connection with newsworthy events of that era.   Each page was drawn beautifully and stand alone as masterpieces.  These are also some of the rarest pages on the market.    As such, they warrant one of the highest premiums of any pages from that era, similar to McCay's Nemo and Denslow's OZ pages.
