(NEW YORK) — A 1928 film poster of Mickey Mouse has been sold to a mystery buyer for more than $100,000 at an auction in Texas.
The color poster is one of the earliest surviving images of the iconic character, created by Walt Disney.
Mickey, who first appeared in Steamboat Willie, replaced an earlier character, Oswald the Lucky Rabbit, created by Disney for Universal Studios.
