The Great Pumpkin

Last December, Profiles in History sold this original artwork to a classic Peanuts comic strip from 1963. Linus and Snoopy are in the pumpkin patch on Halloween night. Linus expects to see the Great Pumpkin appear, but he seems to have a moment of doubt.

I've never really gotten used to the soaring prices that original Peanuts comic strip art now commands. Still, the quality of this strip was never surpassed and it is hard to underestimate its cultural impact.

Charles M. Schulz, Peanuts, October 30, 1963
