Original Peanuts sells for $113,525
An original Charles M. Schulz Peanuts Sunday strip, dated April 10, 1955, recently sold for $113,525. The auction, held by Heritage Auction Galleries, took place on November 15-16.
“This particular piece is the first Peanuts original ever to sell in the six-figure range,” said Ed Jaster, vice president for Heritage. “The demand for Schulz’s Peanuts art has been steadily growing over the last several years. In the last six years, Heritage has sold 61 Peanuts dailies and 30 Peanuts Sundays.”
I suspect that the recent popularity of the Fantagraphic collections, the Schulz and Peanuts bio, and the American Masters helped in driving the price up.
