Donald Duck & nephews Chevy car dealer advertising banner/poster. SUPER RARE! This large vinyl/plastic banner was made in the 1980s I think, and has Donald Duck and his nephews Huey, Dewey and Louie riding in a flying car. It's a huge 4 feet by 6 feet, and has about 8 little splits (3/4" to 2") in it here and there (several in car hood under windshield), patched by clear tape on the back. Has some slight 'ribbing' effect from being rolled so long, which you can see some in the pic, but can probably be heated out or rolled larger and naturally worked out. Nice condition otherwise, and stored rolled in a tube since I've had it. It was for a promotional campaign for renting Chevrolets from National Car Rental and going to Disneyland, and the Anaheim Hilton is mentioned on it too. I got it way back in the late 1980's, from a guy who worked for an Arizona Chevy dealership, and he got it a few years before that. Not sure if it was only a regional promotion or national, but likely regional, and most were thrown out. The several inch wide border at the top is clear, but shows as black as it's laying on a black sheet. Larger pic available. If wall space is a problem, there's always the ceiling. Considering that even modern limited edition Disney lithographs and animation cels sell for several hundred to a thousand dollars plus, that are much smaller, and almost always available, shouldn't this be worth much more due to scarcity alone, much less size? January Sale! Was $300, now...$200 (View)
Disney Classics Videos header display card. A nice cardboard header from a video store, off the top of the display stand for the Classics video series. Has a 1990 copyright date on it. It's 26"W x 22"H, not including the "wings" at the bottom. Image area is 26"x16". Right wing has a several inch tear; light bend along right side, and one light bend near middle, but doesn't show unless glinted. You can cut off the bottom white section and just pin it to the wall of your kids room. It will likely cost more for shipping than the item, as it will have to go flat in double thick cardboard. Features over 15 human and animal characters, from Snow White, Cinderella, Alice in Wonderland, to Bambi, Peter Pan, Little Mermaid, Pinocchio etc.. Only...$5 (View)
Walt Disney Classics Collection:
Mr. Smee (from Peter Pan) "Event" piece from 1994/1995, titled "Oh Dear, Dear Dear." Figurine is about 5" tall, and inspection sticker says it's #12,238. NOT the teal flower version. With box and certificate. I'll include the matching button and postcard too. Has crazing in most of the flesh colored areas (left arm is worst), some on his left side of shorts, legs, nose, and shirt across the back. Does not affect the integrity of the piece, and is a common thing with porcelain. List price was $90. January Sale! Was $25, now just...$15 (View) (View top/left arm, side of shorts and leg)

1994 & 1995 WDCC catalogs. After seeing people supposedly pay up to $12 for near mint ones on that auction site (why?), I decided to list mine for more reasonable prices. Both are 7"x10" and 28 pages. Nice color photos of various statues, with some history and production info. Complete, no writing etc:
1994 has some bending on the back cover at spine, and affects last page; store stamp on front; and some corner bending in lower right, so call it VG, so only...$2 (View) (View Peter Pan page) (View back/inside page)

"Golden Anniversary of Walt Disney's Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs." By Gladstone, 1987. Celebrates the 50th Anniversary of the original 1937 comic strip story, which is fully reprinted in color. Comes with a pack of Panini stickers, and a poster of the cover bound inside. 2 copies. Both graded 9.8 Near Mint/Mint by CGC, more info on my CGC Graded comics page.

Storyboard, the Art of Laughter, Vol. 1, #1, Fall 1990. Actually it's Volume two, as they did a previous version, but they call this Volume 1 also. Celebrates Disneyland's 35th anniversary (1st of two issues they did for it), with old and new pics, and has interviews with Walter Lantz and Peter Schneider. Very nice glossy mag with all kinds of articles, including collecting, and lots of cool dealer ads for coins, cels, and other stuff. Nice near mint copy, no mailing label. These didn't get much distribution, and the mag has gone out of business, so back issues are it. At cover price...$5 (View)

Watches (last one!):
Carl Barks self-portrait watch. Made by Gifted Images, mid-1990's I think, possibly earlier (nothing I have with it has a year stated, but I bought it new, years ago). Has a caricature of Barks dressed in Donald Duck clothing, with facsimile signature. NOT a Disney product. Only 565 were made, of which 500 were sold to the general public, so the certificates are numbered out of 500. Mine's #146 of 500. Came in just a "suede-like pouch", not a box. I also saved the solicitation from the Diamond Comics order book. Watch has all metal case, Japan movement, gold tone (doesn't say gold plated anywhere), gold tone hands, water resistant, and black leather alligator style band. Roman numerals mark the hours on the 1.25" diameter case. Will need a new battery. The certificate states "This watch published by Gifted Images Publishing has been created from an original drawing by Carl Barks. It has been produced in a limited edition of 565, which consists of a general edition of 500; 50 publishers proofs; 15 artists proofs. Each Certificate of Authenticity has been individually numbered," etc. . I think these were $79.95 or $89.95 new, but nothing I have with it has a price on it, and the Diamond catalog page only has "PI" for "Please Inquire" for price, which was only in the dealer's order form. One sold at a Hake's auction in 2008 for $115, without the certificate. This is a scarce piece for you Barks collectors, and you may look for a long time before you find another one. (The darker gold areas on the case are a reflection of ME taking the pic, not tarnishing or discoloration)...$79.95 (View)
