Mickey Mouse poster fetches USD 100,000
A 1928 movie poster featuring iconic character Mickey Mouse sold for more than USD 100,000 at a recent US auction.
The advertisement, believed to be one of the earliest surviving Mickey Mouse posters, was snapped up by an unidentified bidder for USD 101,575 when it went under the hammer at the Heritage Auctions sale in Dallas, Texas, reports contactmusic.com.
The poster, created by Walt Disney, depicts Mickey smiling and waving, while a tagline calls the animated icon "The World's Funniest Cartoon Character".
Grey Smith, director of movie poster auctions at Heritage Auctions, called the item "an important piece of pop culture treasure".
