disney card

Incredible find on eBay – Walt Disney’s 1923 business card. From the listing:

This business card was found in a career scrapbook compiled by Bert Sylvester of Los Angeles, CA. Mr. Sylvester founded one of the first electrical lighting companies in L.A. during the Silent period. Bert Sylvester was right in the center of moviemaking during the early Hollywood years and would very easily have known and worked with Walt Disney in any number of ways. Since the card still has Walt Disney’s Kansas City address, it is likely that he handed this out when he first arrived in L.A. in 1922-1923.

On the flip side, also on eBay is animator Fred Kopietz’ rather dull business card from Walt Disney Productions in the 1960s.
