Estimate: $3000+


Vintage matte-finish 10 x 8 photo of Disney presenting a Mickey Mouse retirement award to the photo's recipient, Fred Schlatter, the longtime gardener at Walt Disney Studios, signed and inscribed in the lower border in black ink "To Fred—with all best, Walt.” In very good to fine condition, with some staining to the surface, visible at an angle.
