Last year, Topps put out a set of Americana trading cards, cataloging particularly American moments. Card 91 pays tribute to A Charlie Brown Christmas. Well, sort of.
The card has no image from the Christmas special; I suspect it was less a creative preference and more a rights issue (while various Peanuts trading card sets have been offered over the years, I don’t think Topps has ever been the publisher to do so.) Instead it has a photograph of Schulz, which is all well and good if you know that, but it never explains that it’s Schulz, and certainly not everyone will recognize him. The back has a slightly grammatically challenged two-sentence explanation of the special and its impact.
