Art Collection

Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg's collection, begun in 1981 by Lee Sandler, now includes more than 100 original Pucks, offering interesting perspectives on turn-of-the-century sentiments on international trade, politics and tariff issues. These originals are on permanent display in the offices of Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg and Sandler & Travis Trade Advisory Services throughout the United States.

Puck Magazine was established in 1876 by Joseph Keppler, an Austrian-born cartoonist who emigrated to the United States in 1867. Each week, the front cover, centerfold and back cover featured different cartoons. Most were political in nature although the back cover usually dealt with social issues. Puck started as a German-language weekly but an  English version appeared in March 1877. The 16-page magazine sold for ten cents. By the early 1880s, Keppler was selling over 80,000 copies a week.

The magazine was eventually purchased by William Randolph Hearst and was closed in September 1918.
