The Art Gallery- 2009 Breygent Movie Posters Stan Laurel

This month’s Art Gallery display comes from one of the best sketch artist to have their work immortalized on cardboard, Brian Kong. His work has appeared on base card designs like the 2009 Topps Allen & Ginter’s release, various Topps National Chicle releases and in a couple of In The Game hockey sets and this is in addition to his sketch cards.

This card is Stan Laurel from the 2009 Breygent Movie Posters release. When I was growing up I was interested in old-school slapstick comedy, I went searching for everything about The Little Rascals, Charlie Chaplin, The Three Stooges, Laurel & Hardy and Abbott and Costello. Probably not the standard shows a kid growing up in the late 70s-early 80s would watch but I loved everything about those black and white comedies.

There is not a large collecting base for cards of these comedians, besides The Three Stooges, so I was excited to come across this Laurel sketch card for an amazing price. I am not certain but I would guess that Brian also did a Oliver Hardy sketch to go with this one and if he did I would be happy to add it to my collection too.


  1. That's very cool! You just cost me 8 bucks. Saw that the base set includes Marx Bros posters. Had to order a set.

  2. Hm, this was a really fun handful of sets they put out, but the sketches were very... hit-or-miss? That's probably just about the best one I've seen. Glad you got a good deal on it.

  3. Beautiful sketch! I've tried to add a few of his older Star Wars sketches to my collection back in the day... but they sold for a pretty penny.
