DISNEY FANS : Pagan y muy bien, por recuerdos históricos de Disneylandia



The Sherman Oaks Galleria .-  How much would you pay for an original piece of vintage Disneyland? How about a “Zorro” costume worn by Guy Williams for $28,750? Or an original prospectus for potential investors in Disneyland, which fetched $10,600? Those were some of the hundreds of memorabilia items sold at the “Remembering Disneyland” auction earlier this month in Sherman Oaks.

 Hundreds of bidders from around the world went online, called in by phone or bid in person during the 7-hour Van Eaton Galleries auction on Dec. 16 of Disneyland items owned by former cast members and early designers.

 “There was something for everyone in this auction. It was also very special because most of the items in it came from people that actually worked at the park, or had a hand in creating it,” said Mike Van Eaton, Co-Founder of Van Eaton Galleries. “Next year we will be hosting several more Disney-related auctions offering rare and unique items from the “Happiest Place on Earth.

                 ” What sold for the most money? Here are some of the results:
