    Description

    Charles Schulz - Peanuts Daily Comic Strip Original Art, 3-26-52 (United Feature Syndicate, 1952). Little Lucy gets some conflicting advice from the bigger girls, Patty and Violet, in this early episode. In fact, this is only the seventh appearance of Lucy Van Pelt, who would go on to be one of the main characters of this beloved, long-running strip. It's pretty rare to find examples of original Peanuts art this early; it came from a business associate of Schulz's, a script writer who had offered his services to Mr. Schulz back during his pre-Peanuts strip, Li'l Folks. Schulz signed the first panel to his friend, and gave it to him as a gift, which he has held onto for all these years. The title logo is missing, and the strip, like most daily examples, has been folded down the middle, which shows a little wear along the crease; otherwise, the ink and pencil on bristol art is in Very Good condition. It measures approximately 28" x 6".

    I have done a preliminary analysis and the total of the hammer prices was $67,550. With BP, the final figure was $80,722.25. That is against the total insurance value of $34,785 or 2.32 x ‘pre-auction estimate’. Incredible, really, so a big thanks.
