    Charles Schulz Peanuts Sunday Comic Strip Original Art, dated 9-29-68 (United Feature Syndicate, 1968). Good ol' Charlie Brown and the incorrigible Lucy Van Pelt start their 1968 Fall season with a celebrated Peanuts tradition -- the annual attempted football kick. As Derrick Bang has noted in his Peanuts Collector Club article titled The Football Gags, "Of all the running jokes with which poor ol' Charlie Brown has been associated, none has a richer history, nor a longer one, than his attempts to kick the football. The fourth quarter of each year brings Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas and Lucy's latest clever little ruse to persuade Charlie Brown to try one more time, and her equally creative excuse for yet another failure. With just a few exceptions, these Sunday strips have appeared every September or October since the strip hit its stride in the late 1950s. This concept did not become a regular, annual feature until 11-16-56, by which time Lucy had 'grown' and become Charlie Brown's peer." This episode has an image area of approximately 22.5" x 15.25". The original logo stat has aged slightly; otherwise, the art is in Excellent condition.
