SCHULZ, CHARLES M. 1922-2000.
Original 4-panel daily strip, pen and ink on stiff paper, 7 x 30 inches, signed ("Schulz") in the final panel, and additionally signed ("Charles M. Schulz") and inscribed in the top margin, March 15, 1975, vertical fold crease, faint offset from inscription, tape residue and skinning to verso edges, pinholes on corners of margins, matted and framed.
A baseball-themed strip featuring Charlie Brown at the pitcher's mound in one of his best remembered scenes. The determined pitcher throws his best, but gets back more than he can handle in a line drive that tumbles him - shoes, socks, hat, and glove flying in all directions - and he calls out, "Yours!"
