R161 Walt Disney Comics Overview

R161 Walt Disney Comics BaseballMickey Mouse R161 FootballThis 32-card set features Walt Disney characters participating in a variety of sports. The cards feature color cartoon images of the characters and in a red border at the bottom, have a caption describing the scene. “Walt Disney Productions” is also printed on the cards.

In all, eight different characters are represented with each character featured on a total of four cards. Many of the sports are minor ones, but baseball, football, and basketball are all included. While the set includes only one football and basketball card, baseball is included on three cards and represented by Mickey Mouse (batter), Goofy (batter), and Joe Carioca (pitcher).

The cards have some perforated edges and were apparently attached at some point.

The exact date on this set is unknown but it is mostly believed to be a 1930s issue.
