It's no secret that Peanuts creator Charles Schulz loved sports. Baseball was an essential element of Charlie Brown's character, as was his determination to place-kick the football that Lucy always promised to hold for him, while ice skating figures in one of the most memorable scenes from A Charlie Brown Christmas (and Schulz himself owned a hockey rink). In four volumes of black and white cartoons—Baseball; Football & Basketball; Tennis & Golf; and Hockey & Ice Skating—this slipcased collection gathers more than 800 pages of sports-themed Peanuts cartoons, many of which played out at length in the Sunday comics.
