    Mickey Mouse and Pluto in Society Dog Show (RKO, 1939). Fine/Very Fine on Linen. One Sheet (27" X 41").
    Disney fans should be thrilled to see this rare piece up for auction, a one sheet not seen at Heritage since 2012! Walt Disney had been making his Mickey Mouse cartoons for just over a decade by the time this canine misadventure was put to film, and it was high time for the world's most famous mouse to get an updated look. Society Dog Show would be the last appearance of Mickey in his original design, his white face and simple oval eyes soon to be replaced with a tan coloring and a more complex eye shape. Mickey's imminent design change certainly makes this poster a special milestone in the history of Disney animation and an item any collector would be proud to own. It has had partial touchup applied to the folds, pinholes, and a diagonal crease at the bottom. The poster also had small chips in the upper corner and in the borders, and there were some minor tears prior to restoration. The linen has been trimmed to the edge of the poster, but this does not appear to affect the paper itself. Overall, it's in highly presentable condition and an eyecatcher for sure with its bright colors.

    Estimate: $10,000 - $20,000.
