NEW YORK (AP) - A rare archive of letters and drawings by “Peanuts” creator Charles Schulz did not find a buyer at a New York City auction.
Sotheby's had estimated that the letters would sell for $250,000 to $350,000 at Friday’s sale.
The cartoonist wrote the affectionate letters to a young woman in 1970-1971.
The 44 letters included 22 original drawings of some of the comic strip’s characters, including Charlie Brown, Snoopy and Lucy.
Schulz died in 2000 at age 77.
