Oor Wullie annual
Oor Wullie - Priceless!
When the first Oor Wullie annual was produced in 1940, who would have thought that today it would be worth more than a hand-made suit or a suite of furniture?
A first edition of the book was found in an attic when people were clearing out the house of a deceased relative. Recently the book was sold in Glasgow for £5,400.
A spokesman for the auction house said:"Oor Wullie has fans across the globe and we knew that there would be a lot of interest in this very rare edition. "There were a lot of bids on the night, resulting in a great price for the book. Bidding was also fierce for the Broons second edition with a whopping £3000 secured at the auction.
"Along with The Broons, the Oor Wullie annual remains a must-have Christmas gift with people of all ages enjoying the mischief and wit of Wullie and his pals."
The graphic on the left is of a model of Oor Wullie in the Museum of Scotland, posed on his famous bucket.
