Description


Outstanding original Charles Schulz drawing presented to gold medal-winning Olympic diver Pat McCormick. Accomplished in graphite, ink, crayon, and watercolor on an off-white 11.25 x 14 sheet of artist's paper, the drawing depicts a glossy photo cutout of McCormick performing a jackknife dive from the upper boughs of a tree, with Snoopy seen waiting below, using a garden hose to fill up a birdbath and shouting: "Not yet! Not yet!" Signed in the lower right corner in black ink, "Schulz." In fine condition. Accompanied by an LA Olympics Committee trading card and a handwritten letter of provenance from McCormick affirming that the "original drawing was sent to me from Charles Schulz."

California's Pat McCormick won a total of four gold medals when she swept the springboard and platform diving events at the 1952 and 1956 Olympics at Helsinki and Melbourne. Following the 1956 Games, McCormick was awarded with the prestigious James E. Sullivan Award, making her just the second female (Ann Curtis) to receive such an honor. After time spent in Colorado Springs and Minneapolis, Schulz and his family changed states for the last time when they moved to California in 1958. As Santa Rosa’s most popular citizen, Schulz’s love for sports manifested in his ownership of the Redwood Empire Ice Arena, a 500-permanent seat arena that hosts the annual Snoopy's Senior World Hockey Tournament. A delightful original drawing that neatly ties together the Peanuts creator’s well-known passion for art and athletics.
