Latest Aquisition 6

Sorry for not having anything Halloween related to report but I do have these interesting items. Last year I purchased a box of Disney paraphernilia at a postcard show. Inside was a felt pennant, measuring approximately 29" by 12", with a Disneyland 3-D postcard attached to it. It happens to be Nickel Tour #0609, card 1-517. Knowing this card was copyrighted in 1966 by Walt Disney Productions, I would assume the pennant came out that time or shortly after.

I was fortunate earlier this year to aquire another similar pennant. It also measures  approximately 29" by 12" with a Disneyland 3-D postcard attached to it. This one, however, happens to be Nickel Tour #0606, card 1-514. As with the card above, it too was copyrighted 1966 by Walt Disney Productions and also came out about that time or shortly after.

Knowing these two exist, I wonder if pennants with the other two 3-D cards are somewhere out there?

Variation 6

It's been a while since my last post as I've really been trying to get back into working on my web site. In doing so I came across this variation of NT: 0977, 01110482 DT-35929-C, It All Started With A Mouse. The image in the Nickel Tour is the one shown below. Notice it has no clouds and the banner "behind" Mickey's left ear is blue and yellow.

You'll notice in the variation shown below there are now clouds added as well as the banner is now purple and yellow.

Latest Aquisition 5

In April of 1964, Walt Disney personally selected the site for Walt Disney World while flying over Central Florida in this Grumman G-159 Gulfstream I. The cards are copyrighted 1964 by Walt Disney Productions and show a view of the plane in flight and an interior view of the cabin.

The plane is now on display at the Disney Hollywood Studios in Walt Disney World.
