    This Disney-designed card from 1932 features Mickey and Minnie Mouse, Pluto, Clarabelle Cow and Horace Horsecollar taking a sleigh ride.

    A rare 1932 Mickey Mouse Christmas card signed by Walt Disney sold at auction Thursday for $13,987.

    The card itself -- addressed to Chicagoan Henry Scherping -- features the original version of Mickey and Minnie Mouse along with a note written less than a month after the cartoonist received his first Oscar.

    Disney sent out dozens of these Christmas cards, but this is the first one that has ever surfaced, according to RR Auction spokesman Bobby Livingston.

    "After seeing such a high price realized, now I know why one might save a Seasons Greetings card from years past," Livingston said.
