Ok, so I just watched a cartoon at work — it’s research for our upcoming sports movie memorabilia issue of Beckett Sports Card Monthly.
Why was I watching Walt Disney‘s 1942 short “How to Play Baseball” on YouTube?
To refresh my memory of the classic after I discovered how rare and how pricey the one piece of memorabilia tied to this short is.
What is it? How much is it worth? Find out … after the jump.
Only one copy of this linen one-sheet in Very Fine condition has been sold by Dallas-based Heritage Auctions since 2003 — and it sold for $17,250.
There’s absolutely nothing goofy about that.
While it’s not from a movie, it’s too unique not to get a nod in the issue. You can see more about memorabilia with big-screen and small-screen ties in the next issue.
It should be a fun one — well, if I can stop watching cartoons and get some work done.
