This is a cigarette card issued by the Wix Tobacco Co. of England, depicting a scene from 1938's Men With Wings. We're pretty sure that's Donald on the left.

This is a card issued by the Editorial Bruguera Company of Spain as part of a set of cards entitled "Cromos Cinefoto" given as free premiums. The picture looks to be from somewhere between 1948 and 1950. At a guess, this is a cigarette card released sometime in the early fifties.

This is a promotional item for 1950's The Milkman, a Happy Day milk truck by Divco.


This is a Movie Herald advertisement for, The Milkman.


This is an "Arcade" or "exhibition" card, which back in the good old days you could get from machines for a small piece of change at, naturally, Arcades or exhibitions. The signature is of course pre-printed, but in this case doesn't even look close to the real thing.


This is an ad in a local television program guide, back when Donald was doing the Colgate Comedy Hour.

This is a novelization of the 1961 movie, The Wonders of Aladdin.



A postcard promoting one of Donald's appearances at the Sahara Hotel in 1958.


This is pretty self explanatory. Both Liberace and Donald were appearing at a fair in Allentown in approximately 1965.

This card is part of the Starline Hollywood Walk of Fame set that came out in 1991.

These are postcards of Donald O'Connor: the first was given out by his fanclub, the second was to promote a Las Vegas appearance, and the third is Donald with Kirk Douglas in front of the Chinese Theater.
