Description: Schulz Charles

Charles Schulz Signed Highly Detailed Baseball Content Drawing of Lucy and Linus

An extraordinary pre-publication drawing, 5" x 3.75," of some of our favorite members of the Peanuts gang. Schulz both draws and signs this highly detailed drawing of Lucy with her baseball cap doing her classic "teeth baring" threatening grin, completely startling her brother, Linus. Linus is drawn with his baseball glove in hand, his hair raised on end in fright, and his cap flying off his head! The piece is drawn in artist blue line, then over sketched in graphite, a method used back when people would sketch with "non-photo blue" because it was more or less invisible when used on Xerox machines or in production. These pieces were designed to be published. Boldly signed by Charles Schulz in full signature using blue felt tip to upper left corner, "Charles M. Schulz."

The art is surrounded by a black bordered edge to a full size of 6" x 4.5."

Although quick fan sketches signed by Schulz are more common in the marketplace, his published original signed pieces used in books or newspapers sell for $15,000 and up, to $60,000 for a classic Sunday comic strip. This highly unique piece is the most detailed we have ever seen pre-publication.

A perfect gem for the Schulz collector with a highly coveted Baseball theme!
