Charles Schulz Drawing of Charlie Brown and Snoopy, estimated at $1,000-$2,000 at Revere.

‘Peanuts’ collection showcases the genius of Charles Schulz at Revere May 20

ST. PAUL, MN — Nearly 70 lots from a likely one-owner collection of Peanuts memorabilia comes to auction at Revere Monday, May 20. The event showcases the talents of Minnesota-born Charles Schulz (1922-2000), creator of the 20th century’s most popular daily comic strip, Peanuts. The complete catalog is now open for bidding at LiveAuctioneers.

The sale is topped by four original daily comic strip artworks, all dating from the later years of Schultz’ career. This black ink over pencil on art board three-panel strip originally ran Wednesday, March 15, 1995 and features Lucy and and Linus with his beloved blanket. It is estimated at $10,000-$15,000. A four-panel strip from Saturday, May 28, 1994 features Woodstock and Snoopy in a sound-off and carries the same estimate.

The sale includes a number of one-off, loose original sketches and drawings by Schulz, including this colored take on Charlie Brown and Snoopy. Measuring 16 by 12in, it is estimated at $1,000-$2,000.

Schulz made far more from his licensing deals than he ever did from his work as a cartoonist. This early-1970s Monogram model kit featured both flying ace Snoopy and his eternal nemesis, the Red Baron. This was designed to be a so-called ‘first’ model kit, featuring snap-together construction, pre-painted elements such as the heads, and stickers instead of decals. In built-up condition with no original packaging, Revere has the set estimated at $80-$100.
