Walt Disney fans can buy a piece of history when the late animation entrepreneur's signed will and other Disney memorabilia go up for auction on Friday.

The "Animation and Disneyana Auction," held at Profiles in History in Los Angeles, will offer 600 lots of animation art and Disney-related items.

The list includes animation frames from memorable films such as Cinderella and the holiday classic How the Grinch Stole Christmas. A prop pistol from the original Pirates of the Caribbean attraction at Walt Disney World will also go under the hammer.

Disney's last will and testament is expected to fetch between $40,000 and $60,000, said Brian Chanes, head of acquisitions at Profiles in History.

Disney co-founded an animation studio in 1923, which eventually grew into a feature film production studio with films such as Snow White and the Seven DwarfsBambi and Cinderella. He died in 1966 aged 65.
