Relative value

From Greg Claassen: I'm in the process of restoring my first "professional" vent figure, "Jess Malarkey." I haven't used him in years but he was made by Craig Lovik (I think) and sold through Maher Studios in the 1970's. In the catalog he was called "Buford Buckworth".

From Mr. D: Yes, Buford was one of the "Talkalot" series of figures by Lovik. I was able to locate a 1973 Newsy Vents where that series of figures was first advertised (see below). $175.00 was a sizable investment in those days, but restored he'd bring several times that amount today. Of course, with him being your first figure (and a member of your family) I suspect his value to you today is - priceless!
