It’s that time again – time to clear an evening to schedule a romantic Christmas-themed, in-house, date-night with my wife, starting with her favorite can’t miss pre-Christmas viewing of, you guessed it, A Charlie Brown Christmas. Not romantic you say? A nice dinner followed by this 30 minute investment of my time, capped off with sweet conversation by candlelight with The Vince Guaraldi Trio’s “A Charlie Brown Christmas” playing softly in the background… Did I mention desert? While contemplating my up-and-coming evening plans, I was sadly brought back to reality as I recalled an issue we unearthed during the past year which featured Charles Schultz’ last installment of Peanuts. This discovery, while a bit sad, reminded me once again of the importance of stopping to smell the roses; they simply do not last forever. So, while you take a gander at a snippet from the issue shown below, or see close-up shots via the link above, I’ll get back to my date-night plans: “Roses are red, violets are blue…”blog-12-15-2016-peanuts-last

    Hello Sydney: Clippings have no value. As far as your newspapers are concerned… We do not monitor requests concerning the value of newspapers through this venue – but we would be glad to assist. If you have a newspaper or a collection for which you are seeking an appraisal, please contact us directly at info@rarenewspapers.com. Please include as many details as possible. Thanks.
