    Most Valuable Disneyland collectible

    What would you say is the most expensive Disneyland souvenier item from the past? Some things that come to mind would be, 1). the 1958 Disneyland map with the Viewliner Train on it 2). the electrical (Schuco I think) Monorail train set 3). a paper item with Walt's signature on it 4). the plastic helmet with all the "lands" on it 5). an original opening day Disneyland ticket. Any other ideas?

    I don't know. I have a limited edition sculpture that's worth around 1000-14000 bucks that originally I bought for 300.

    I would guess an original attraction poster would probably be pretty valuable now too. One of the silk-screened ones. Wish I had a few of those.

    That's a wide range.

    Are you talking only about items meant to be purchased as souvenirs? Cast-member only items? Or anything associated with the park? What about the marquee? Or the various ride vehicles that have been auctioned off? What about the four original train cars in SLO? Those are pretty rare!

    I guess we should limit it to items that could be purchased within the Park.

    Wow. OK, the Atwood steam-powered Jungle Cruise boat is probably beyond even the Shucco Monorails (which turn up frequently). E Tickets are a dime a dozen (almost).

    If it were that, it would probably be the original Herb Ryman pencil sketch of Disneyland.



    A-mazing.

    How much would a "I was there" pin go for now? Anyone know?

    The orignial movie cells sold at Art Corner that are marked wth the Art Corner at Disneyland ... depending on the cell are way pricey! I believe they were selling them off for a dollar at the time.

    I heard they even threw many of these away because they did not sell well. Can you imagine that? I too heard they sold for about $1. To do some dumpster diving at Disneyland in the 50's would have been highly profitable today.

    I guess the next question would be what do you think your most valuable collectible is? Whether it is monetary value or sentimental value!

    Well, this is a collectible now that I had when I was younger, but it was a metal Disneyland lunch box with Mickey on one side and the Country Bears on the other. The sides had pics of the different rides. My mother sold this at a garage sale. Years later I went to the Smithsonian and they had a display of lunch boxes which included this one. I have been looking to replace it, but all I can find is the same one from WDW instead of Disneyland. I want it back for the sentimental value, but I think its monetary value will probably prevent that!!

    LOL!!! That is probably true. Keep checking out the garage sales and you might get lucky. They say one person's junk is another person's treasure!!!!
