    A Walt Disney Rare Signed Sketch of Mickey Mouse, Circa 1940s. Rendered on a tan-colored piece of paper in black fountain pen ink, depicting a sketch of the famous mouse in profile, signed in black fountain pen ink on the right side "To Charlie / Sincerely / Walt Disney," a magazine cut-out color image of Disney glued to the upper right corner, matted above a placard outlining basic information about the animator.
    Matted and Framed: 28" x 18"; Sketch Only: 5 1/2" x 8 1/2"

    Noted Disney authenticator, Phil Sears, whose Letter of Authenticity accompanies this lot, advises that he has personally bought or sold just six Mickey Mouse sketches drawn and signed by Walt Disney in his 23+ years in the field. When the premier expert on "Disneyana" essentially says he has handled similar items about once every four years, its rarity is confirmed!
