Rare Disney Memorabilia Going to Auction
If Disneyland is the 'Happiest Place on Earth', then surely it's memories are worth a fortune - literally. About a million dollars worth of rare and vintage Disney memorabilia is set to be auctioned off, and some of the proceeds will go to the Annette Funicello Research Fund for Neurological Diseases. Annette, of course, was one of the most famous Mousketeers in history, and died in 2013 of multiple sclerosis.
Some of the unique items to be auctioned off by the Van Eaton Galleries in Sherman Oaks, California are Annette's personal pair of Mickey Mouse ears, which she had bronzed, one of the first blueprints of Disneyland, 'Ole King Cole' window displays featuring Mickey and Minnie Mouse from the 1933 film, and so much more.
There is a wealth of Disney memorabilia that has very rarely been seen by the public, and if you want to participate, or make a bid, the 'Collecting Disney' auction will take place June 18, 2016 at Van Eaton Galleries. Check out some of these historical items which truly are....magical.
