1935 R89 Mickey Mouse Bubble Gum #21 Walt Disney and Mickey Mouse Type 2 - PSA NM-MT 8 - Highest Graded!

Starting Bid - $200, Sold For - $1,880

Graded NM-MT 8 by PSA. Only example graded at this level by PSA, with none graded higher. The highest-graded example of one of nonsport-card collecting's greatest classics! This is an extraordinary ultra-high grade example of the iconic card that has always defined the 1935 Mickey Mouse set for many collectors. This highly desirable card from the R89 Mickey Mouse Bubble Gum series (Type 2 variety) captures animation pioneer Walt Disney drawing his most famous cartoon character, Mickey Mouse. The creator of Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, Goofy, and countless other classic cartoon characters, Walt Disney remains one of the most important figures in the history of animation. Mickey Mouse cards are substantially rarer than their baseball-card counterparts of the same era. They are also much rarer to find in extremely high grade than 1930s Goudey baseball issues. The card is very well centered, with sharp corners, and virtually flawless registration. This is an extremely high-grade 1935 Mickey Mouse card, the highest-graded example. Reserve $200. Estimate (open).

SOLD FOR $1,880
