Walter Disney was born at the dawn of the 20th Century and became one of its most influential persons. He was a pioneer in the world of cartoon production and animation. It was Disney who brought full-color, and sound tracks to cartoons that were no longer just short fillers but feature-length productions. One of his most endearing creations is Mickey Mouse who debuted in "Steamboat Willie" in 1928. It was among the first cartoons with sound. Disney characters have appeared on almost every possible house-hold item or collectible.

In the May 27, 1931 Mickey Mouse daily cartoon strip (drawn by Floyd Gottfredson) it involved Mickey having his picture taken. Readers could also get a copy of Mickey's "picture." This is the card they would receive. This "rookie" card of Mickey Mouse. Graded PSA Fair 1.5. There are only four noted on the PSA census. This is a rare relic from the early years of what would still become the Disney entertainment empire.
