Yesterday at the NFFC Disneyana sale in Garden Grove, CA, I bought a 1955 Disney fan card, sent Nov. 8, 1962, with an In Search of the Castaways cancellation stamp. A bit curious, as it of course has no Sleeping Beauty or One Hundred and One Dalmatians, and Davy Crockett's coonskin cap was old hat. Drawn by Bob Moore, it is 5x7".
This morning, I find that Michael Sporn wrote about the fan cards he received in the 50s: "I remember one which was very different. It must have had fifty characters in it - a lot of the feature characters (somehow I remember Brer Rabbit) - were set within drawn frames and gathered on this card. That’s right, about fifty frames on a little card - maybe 5×7 - so all the characters were small."
Did it ever come up before? No! But here it is! How weird is that?
Remember to look at the pictures in my previous post, and write me if you know more about the people and the event!

That's it! I can't believe it! It's hilarious to think that my childhood memory led me to believe there were even more framed portraits than there were. What a laugh!

Thanks, Hans.
