A sketch that was drawn and autographed by Walt Disney is going up for auction.

Holabird-Kagin Americana will stage the auction in Reno for the drawing, titled Fill Up My Can, The Associated Press reported.

Real pieces signed by him are really rare, Fred Holabird told The AP. This is one of the earliest known signed Disney pieces, if not the earliest. 

The drawing was posted on The New York Times' Web site. It features a man wearing a derby hat, striped pants, and smoking a cigar. Its value is believed to be between $35,000 and $50,000, The AP reported.

Disney memorabilia makes for popular collecting and auctioning. There are several online resources for Disney enthusiasts who want to purchase Disney goods -- both old and new -- including FantasiesComeTrue.com. EBay currently lists thousands of Disney items up for grabs.

In 2010, a Pennsylvania man made approximately $60,000 after he auctioned off hundreds of items from his Disney collection, the Daily Local News reported.
