The Duckster is an in-house award given by The Walt Disney Company for a variety of reasons, including service to the company as well as to the community as a whole. The award was first presented by Disney founder Walt Disney.
Disney storyman and director Jack Hannah at some point obtained one of the unawarded extra statues from the studio; it was auctioned in 2005 for $4,813. That same year Martha Torge's Duckster was auctioned for $5,701.
