Disney 1937 Christmas Materials - Hake & Ingeborg Willy

I was looking over some of the Disney items up for sale on Hake's Auction site. I came across a listing for several 1937 Christmas items. I realized that the items that were up for auction were also included in the Ingeborg Willy scrapbook that I had.

Ingeborg Willy Scrapbook Items

Here's the description from the Hake site:
Two cards which were issued together as a set. First is 7x10" on nice quality cardstock with text on front "Season's Greetings." Card interior has tip-in sheet with choice "Snow White And The Seven Dwarfs" art by Gustaf Tenggren that was also used for the one-sheet movie poster. Lightest trace of aging. Strip of aging to tip-in sheet where applied with glue. Still displays Exc. overall. Second card is 4.5x5" with text "And Greetings From Us Too!" featuring Mickey and Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck and Pluto buried in the snow. Exc./N. Mint. Comes with postally issued Christmas-themed envelope with matching holly berry and leaf motif "Walt Disney - Burbank California" return address. Envelope has 1/8" hole punch at right and shows handling wear mostly from mailing. Fine. Scarce set.
I really didn't have much about these individual items. A short time ago, I had sent some of the images around for comment and David Lesjak wrote back:
David Lesjak That Snow White piece you sent - was that the insert for the 1938 corporate Christmas card - the Tenggren scene with all the characters.
It is interesting how you can start to collect additional information from the auction sites that relate to the items you may own. Naturally, you have to use common sense in gauging the authenticity of items posted anywhere on the web...
