Bought and Paid For . . . But Never Published. The Wall Street Journal, 1999

This is another cartoon of mine that The Wall Street Journal bought and paid for, but mysteriously was never published. It was purchased  toward the end of the 1999 baseball season, and I figured it would show up for sure when the World Series began. But it was not to be, as far as I know, and I'm pretty certain that it has never been printed at any time since then. By the way, if anybody has seen any of my "Bought and Paid For . . . " cartoons anywhere in print, please let me know about it. I like to resolve mysteries like this.
