    Description

    Mickey Mouse Stock Poster (United Artists, 1933). Fine+ on Linen. Stock One Sheet (27.25" X 41").
    Created in 1928 by Walt Disney and Ub Iwerks and voiced by Walt Disney himself, Mickey Mouse brought its creator to the attention of the world and helped established Disney's reputation as a creative genius. Born in July, 1928, the release date of Plane Crazy, the anthropomorphic mouse has evolved from a simple character in animated cartoons and comic strips to one of the most recognizable symbols in the world. United Artists picked up the Disney franchise when Columbia dropped him in 1932 and this rare stock sheet was probably the first to be distributed by the studio's new distributor. This incredibly rare poster (later incarnations boasted a bold "Technicolor!" title at the top) has benefitted from professional corrections to fold wear and separations, misfolds, pinholes, and a few small chips and tears. There were a couple of thin strips of paper loss along the left edge of the poster that have been replaced, and the one sheet still shows some faint unaddressed staining. The borders have been airbrushed.


    Estimate: $8,000 - $16,000.
