    Description

    Charles Schulz Peanuts Daily Comic Strip Original Art dated 11-11-81 (United Feature Syndicate, 1981). Snoopy heading over to cartoonist Bill Mauldin's house to "quaff a few root beers" on Veteran's Day was a long-running gag in this strip. Mauldin was the great WWII cartoonist who gave us Willie and Joe. He and Charles Schulz were friends, as evidenced by the personalization on the top margin addressed to Mauldin that is signed "Sparky" (Schulz childhood nickname). Schulz only signed that moniker on things for his personal friends. This piece is created in ink over graphite on Bristol board with an image area of 21.25" x 5". It has previously been folded between the center panels to allow mailing to and from the syndicate. There is foxing and toning. Overall, in Very Good condition.
