Denny O’Neil’s personal Smith Corona SL 570 Electric Typewriter; comes with Denny’s Batman mousepad
This desk dates to the 1940s or ’50s and had been in Denny’s possession since the mid-1960s traveling with him for at least two moves; Denny sat at this desk as he wrote his most well-regarded work, spanning his entire professional career.
There are a total of 31 lots listed at ComicConnect, including many more bound volumes, personal papers, books and other items from The Denny O’Neil Estate Collection.
Bidding on each lot starts at $1 and there’s no reserve. There’s also a charitable aspect to the auction and you can read more about that here.
The auction ends March 2 — so good luck!
