"Love has destroyed a lot of good pitchers"—Peanuts on love and baseball, a terrific original Schulz comic strip from 1990

Original hand-inked four panel Peanuts daily comic strip drawn by Charles Schulz for September 12, 1990, 20.75 x 7, signed vertically in the last panel with his artist signature, "Schulz." The comic follows a conversation between Schroeder and Charlie Brown during a baseball game, with the latter, seen standing on the pitcher’s mound, explaining: “I got a letter from Peggy Jean today…she says she still likes me.” Schroeder, the catcher: “If you’re talking to me, Charlie Brown, I’m standing here behind you…” Charlie Brown whirls about in his direction, “Oops…sorry,” before Schroeder walks away muttering: “Love has destroyed a lot of good pitchers.” A “1990 United Feature Syndicate, Inc.” notice is affixed between the first and second panels. Mounted, matted, and framed to an overall size of 25.5 x 11.5. In very fine condition.
