Hard-to-find vintage 1930-1940 Mickey & Minnie Mouse cartoon bread premium trading card, copyright by Walt Disney Enterprises.
Disney cartoon trading cards from this series were offered as premiums by several brands of bread and bakery products during this period. This one was enclosed with Travis Quality Products, a complete list of which is on the back of the card. We wish we could tell you the exact date this card was issued, and where the Travis Bakery was located, but both are mysteries we have yet to unravel.
Below the picture on each card in the series is a brief description of the cartoon scene portrayed. This card features only Mickey Mouse's girlfriend, Minnie Mouse, ice-skating with a sail made for her by Mickey.
Minnie and Mickey were both introduced by Disney in 1928, first drawn by Ub Iwerks. Designed in the fashion of a 1920's "flapper" girl, she followed the trends of the modern youth culture of the day, such as liking the color red. She usually appears is shown in a short polka-dotted dress with a matching bow and white gloves, and high-heeled pumps that are too large for her feet.
Printed on thin paper card stock lithographed with brilliant colors, copyright Walt Disney Enterprises. On this card the white border usually present has been trimmed off, and it measures only 4" high x 2" wide.
CONDITION: In very good condition for its age. No folds or creases. The original white border has been unevenly trimmed, leaving the card no longer square and with edges that are no longer straight. There is one small nick in the center of the lower margin. The card may have been affixed in an album at some time in its long history, and the back has some slight age discoloration. There is one pencil mark on the back. All flaws are clearly visible in the photos.
