To kick off the "Lady and The Tramp" postings of items in the collection, I thought I'd start with Disney's Sketch-Book.
This was the sixth in the Sketch-Book series dated 1998. It was a limited edition with a run of 2,500 and signed by Joe Grant. All of the Sketch-Books have become fairly rare and collectible. In our collection we have three of these books that are still in the original shrink-wrap and have never been opened... Talk about "mint in box"...!
I played around with the idea of opening one to scan Grant's signature, but I saw that opened excellent condition copies have been going for $300-$500 and decided that an un-opened copy would probably be worth a hundred bucks more, so it just wasn't worth it. Sorry.
