(Disneyland, 1958) On one particular day during the summer of 1958, 21-year old Howard Thomas was working his regular job as ride operator on the Mad Hatter Tea Party ride when he suddenly realized that Walt Disney was standing behind him watching him work. Flustered, as anyone would be, he looked around for something to have Disney sign. Not finding anything, he reached in his wallet and pulled out his employee Disneyland Recreation Club Card, and asked Walt to sign the back. Measures 3.5”x2.25”. The paper card has the Disneyland Recreation Club on the front and a strong Walt Disney signature in ballpoint pen on the reverse. In good condition with wear and creases from age and use. An amazing piece of Disneyland memorabilia.
