Lot 5 Vintage PEANUTS SNOOPY CHARLIE BROWN Charles Schulz Hallmark 1960s GREAT – $100 Find it on eBay (affiliate link).
“Oh!” I said to myself, “Is that a box set of Hallmark books? You don’t come across those very often.” As I looked into the listing, there was no box. Just the books. Why the high price tag for these Mini Peanuts Hallmark Books? The red and white books would have originally been a box set, but no longer.
Hallmark made a variety of these small gift books in the early 1970’s. The philosophy books reprint comic strips. The greeting card books feature new content for whatever event the book is about. The Charlie Brown “All About Birthdays” greeting card book seen here would have included an envelope for mailing. The envelopes are the hardest part to find!
How much are Mini Peanuts Hallmark Books worth?
Being made for giving, there is often a name written in the front of Mini Peanuts Hallmark Books. While it’s a “condition issue”, as long as it’s neat and doesn’t run throughout the book, I can forgive the personalization. The philosophy books are plentiful on the market and are worth around $3-8 each, depending on condition. Finding the greeting card books can be more difficult. Depending on the rarity, expect to pay around $3-12 each. Finding the original envelopes or cardboard sleeve for a box set is difficult and can double the price.
