Buying/Selling and Appraisals

Every now and then, the kind readers of this blog leave comments in old posts that ask for appraisals of their Disney or Disneyland items or wonder if I'd be interested in buying or selling this or that.

If you have such a question, feel free to contact me at my email address:  I rarely look back at old posts, so if you're leaving your inquiry there, it's unlikely that I will ever see it.  Just email's a lot easier and more direct.

Thanks again for reading!

1967 New Tomorrowland Opening Day Invitation

Sorry for the delay between posts, but you and all.

Here's a cool item that goes with the previously posted 1967 press ticket and program.  This is the invitation for the opening day of the 1967 Tomorrowland that brought us such favorites as the PeopleMover and Adventures Thru Inner Space. 

The whole thing was too big for my scanner, so here it is in pieces.  The first shot is the cover, and the second is the whole interior as one piece.  The third and fourth shots are close-ups of the interior, including that BEAUTIFUL conceptual painting that we all know and love.  I wonder if the RETLAW archives has that one...I'll have to ask.  I didn't shoot the text on the far right, but it says something about returning the enclosed RSVP card (which I don't have, alas) to confirm attendance.

It turns out that I DO have the RSVP card AND the envelope.  You know you're in trouble/old when you don't remember what you own anymore.  Anyway, here's a photo:
