Hi Alan – I am wondering if you can help me. I have an original signed Charles Schulz cartoon drawing of Snoopy as the Red Barron dated 1967. (8×10). Could you direct me how to find out what this is worth or anybody that might be interested purchasing it.
Thank you for your time,
Joyce Culpepper

That’s cool that they are going to be in the Empire State Building.

I try to avoid New York. I do have a membership at the Cartoon Museum in San Francisco.

Anyone know the status of the NCM? The last update on the site is 2006, and say they won’t be in the Empire State Building, but elsewhere on the site they mention how great it will be to be in the ESB??

Any New Yorker’s posting here with info?

Eric, here’s a link to other stories regarding the museum. Long story short – the museum couldn’t raise enough money for the space. Last I heard, they were looking at other locations.

Thanks, Alan.

After my earlier post, I went back and read the previous stories. Hope the NCM gets something worked out…
