The International Museum of Cartoon Art says it is reluctantly auctioning its prize exhibit -- purportedly the first drawings of Mickey Mouse -- to help pay debts. The museum will offer the drawings and hundreds of other items for sale to defray nearly $2 million in debt, most owed to a bank which holds the museum's mortgage. The 36-panel storyboard from the 1928 Walt Disney cartoon "Plane Crazy" was the first drawing ever made of Mickey Mouse, according to Mort Walker, founder of the museum that displays vintage cartoons, comic strips, films and animation art. The storyboard is valued at between $3.2 million and $3.7 million.(AP)http://sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/n/a/2001/05/13/national2031EDT0577.DTL&nl=fix

And I read they didn't get their asking price!
So should I be calling in IOUs and bidding on it?
