Mickey Mouse Litho is the D23 'Special Gift'

I received my D23 membership card in the mail today with a note welcoming me to "the Official Community for Disney Fans:

The note indicated that a welcome letter, membership certificate and the first issue of "Disney twenty-three" magazine was on the way. Also coming is a top secret "special gift" which is reported to be a 20" x 30" lithograph of Mickey Mouse's official 80th anniversary portrait (I read this on the Internet, so I know it must be true).

Here's a look at the portrait, as scanned from "Disney twenty-three" magazine:

Although I like the portrait, I'm a bit disappointed in receiving it as a free gift. I was hoping for something along the lines of a figurine a'la the Walt Disney Collectors Society. I can always make room to squeeze in a new figurine (despite Jeanne telling me our living room's starting to look like a warehouse), but finding wall space for a poster-size portrait is a bit trickier. I'm not really keen on hanging it in the garage.
