Vintage Snoopy Peanuts 1965 United Feature Syndicate Large Towel Surfs Up HTF – $48.99. Find it on eBay (affiliate link).
When I was a kid, my dad had a Snoopy Beach Towel. Oh how I wanted that towel. I can’t remember what my beach towel even had on it! Probably Care Bears. While this doesn’t make me an expert on Peanuts Beach Towels, my years of collecting has. Anyone who’s read this series before knows this isn’t from 1965. The biggest giveaway is Snoopy’s large round nose. Over the years, Snoopy has gained weight just like the rest of us. After looking through my archives, I realized this isn’t Snoopy surfing, it’s a recomposition of Joe Skateboard from 1977. Also, the font used for Snoopy and the color scheme are very 1980’s.
How much is a Snoopy Beach Towel worth?
Peanuts beach towels are fun, but they’re not great display pieces generally. It’s a lot of real estate, but they are fun ways to make a bold, tropical statement in a Snoopy room. I would expect to pay around $15-25 for a vintage Snoopy Beach Towel in very good to mint condition. Price depends not only on condition, but the quality of the towel material.
