Lot 651: Personal check, 8.25 x 3, filled out by Disney's secretary Delores Voght and signed by Disney, "Walter E. Disney," payable to Walt Disney—Special Acct for $425, October 27, 1954. In fine condition, with expected bank stamps and cancellation holes. Struggling to obtain funding for the massive undertaking of his brainchild, Disneyland, Walt Disney began hosting his own television show for ABC in 1954 in exchange for the network's help in financing the park. Just three months before signing this check, he finally saw construction begin. An excellent piece marking a crucial time in Disney's history.
