    Re: Most Valuable Disneyland collectible

    I recently picked up a first year (1956) TSI map drawn by Herb Ryman (unedited) relatively reasonably on ebay. I love the artwork.

    You can get an opening day ticket on eBay and they aren't that expensive from what I have seen..

    Re: Most Valuable Disneyland collectible

    I have a couple of Shag autographed items from the Tiki Room anniverary. Also, a few ride prints with the autographs of X. Atencio and Bob Gurr. Maybe someday those will be worth something when they aren't around anymore, but, I don't plan to part with them.

    I got all of those (and about 5 different Schucos...they made many variations).

    My most valuable collectible though, is my Club 33 prospectus that was given to me on the opening night of Club 33 in 1967. It's in its original mailing envelope (but non-addressed as it was given by hand) and is a bit different than the ones they distributed later in 1967 and later still reproduced for one of the Club's anniversaries. When I took it into the Disney Archives...even they didn't have a copy of it or had ever seen it!

    The Club 33 menu I pinched...got...that opening night is also one of my most prized collectibles and another one that I've "loaned" to Disney on occasion. Though a bit stained (we had fun), it's still fun to look at those prices!





    I've got dozens that I think are extremely valuable (and rare). But almost all my most cherished collectibles have personal experiences behind them. They may not be the most "valuable" on eBay...but they are the most valuable to me.

    Re: Most Valuable Disneyland collectible

    I have one of the original Disneyland guidebooks, "The Story of Disneyland," from 1955. I also have two strips of Santa Fe and Disneyland RR tickets and two TWA Rocket Ship certificates from 1956 signed by my mom and dad.

    I don't think these have a huge monetary value, but they're among my prized Disney collectibles.

    Re: Most Valuable Disneyland collectible

    I think the sentimental collectibles are so much better!!! I have to say my favorite is my goofy figurine from the 1940's! I don't if it is even worth anything but my boyfriend's mom gave it to me the first Christmas we were together. The reason it is so special is because she really didn't know me very well but went out of her way to find something that she knew that I would really like and cherish!!
    If you believe, dreams really do come true!!!

    Is it of a $14,000 Disney Dollar bill?

    Re: Most Valuable Disneyland collectible

    I know its probably not worth the most money but I have an intact ticket booklet with 1 A, 2 bs, 2c, 2ds, and 2 es; along with the checklist at the back to make sure you got to all the attractions.
    I'm literally a born Disney fan! I was born at Providence St. Joseph Med Center right across the street from Disney Studios in Burbank. The same hospital where Walt died.
