I am a rather devoted Neal Adams collector, but I have a fondness for Peanuts books as well. My earliest recollection is from when I started to get back into comic books in 1994. I was at a convention in Detroit, the first one I had ever attended. And there, I found a dealer selling a raw copy of this issue. I instantly had to have it and it started my journey back into comic books. I later went on to have it graded and it came back a CGC 9.4. When I sold my first collection, I sold it as well. Sadly, very sadly. Now that I am back into collecting for the umpteenth time, I realize I need to have this book back in my life. While I would love to have my 9.4 back, if I am going to dream and dream big: full on drool then why not go for the 9.6.
Absolutely the #1 Peanuts cover of all time.
