Peanuts 1973 Original Production Art Proof Page Snoopy Woodstock Charles Schulz
And check out OUR NEWLY LISTED ITEMS. This is an original printed proof page for the classic newspaper comics strip Peanuts, by the legendary Charles M. Schultz legendary writer and artist of the Peanuts strip, and creator of Snoopy, Charlie Brown, Woodstock, Linus, Lucy, Peppermint Patty, Pigpen, Schroeder, Marcie, Sally, Franklin, Rerun, etc. This proof sheet is for strips from the week of February 19- 24, 1973.
It includes 6 complete daily strips together on one sheet (February 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, and 24), and each strip has some classic Peanuts humor! The page measures approximately 10" by 17", and is in very good condition, particularly for its age over 45 years old! , with some light wear including some slight chipping on the left edge, and very slight separation around the middle of the fold (not that visible unless you hold the piece up to light). It has been folded across the middle vertically and horizontally (commonly done for syndicate proofs).There are not likely to be many surviving Peanuts proofs, which would of course make this piece very rare. This is a fantastic piece for the collection for a fan of the strip or the Peanuts cartoons, and would look great framed and prominently displayed. This is a particularly special page, as it features a classic Charlie Brown Baseball-themed strip where he reads rules regarding the Designated Hitter, another classic strip where he exclaims Yesterday I was almost happy... For one brief moment I thought I was winning in the game of life... But there was a flag on the play! , and the favorite Peanuts characters Snoopy and Woodstock together in 2 of the episodes, with Snoopy in every single panel of the first, third, and last strips! Please note that this is an authentic piece from the 1970's, not something made for a later reprint or collection book. We have been told there are reprint production art pieces being listed by other sellers that make them seem to be old and from original printings, even though they are not for example, older production art did not have the words on a separate sheet from the images. Those kinds of things were only done much more recently, using computer technology.
We advise buyers to be careful, as there are disreputable sellers tricking many people into believing they are purchasing items that are older and more valuable than what they actually are. Some sellers simply do not state their items are from reprints, while others make very long listings and put a tiny mention about reprints buried deep in the listing, and/or use a hard-to-read font color (like yellow) to prevent buyers from seeing this information. Unfortunately, everything else in the listing the title, pictures of the cover of the comic from the 1st printing, etc.This item is a genuine proof from the'70's, not something made for a reprint.
