I had every intention yesterday of writing a “Bastille Day” post, but didn’t quite get there due to other demands, so a belated “Vive la France!” all the same. I spent a year living in Paris about 15 years ago and absolutely loved it. (This was just before I got into Disneyland postcards, so alas, I did not put together a collection of Disneyland Paris cards). But, if you have any questions about the origins of Tintin, I can answer those based on my experience there!
If you read this blog regularly, you know that I like to point out remarkable eBay sales of Disney postcards when they arise. This past week there were a few sales worth mentioning. You may have read my post on the NT1119 card a little while back. Yesterday, a copy of NT1119A sold for $92. There were four bidders bidding nine times total when it was all finished. On the strength of that, I changed the price category of this card to “R” in the price guide. Why not “VR”? Well…I’d like to see another one go for above the $75 threshold before doing that. On a side note…the same seller offered a copy of NT1119, and it sold for $33.
Another interesting recent result has to do with a pair of Japan Airlines cards that celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Disneyland Tokyo Resort. There are yellow and pink variants of this card…with the pink variant generally getting more than the yellow. One of the pink cards (shown here) closed on eBay yesterday for $14. The yellow one usually goes for below $5. Oh…and keep in mind that there is also another card that features a Boeing 777. This card shown here is a Boeing 737-800
Keep your eye out on the checklist…I am closing in on 1400 records entered and am almost up to NT1000! If no one else uses it…I certainly do! It’s rather useful when trying to find a card based on what you know about it (“So, what’s the NT number of that Goofy card again?”). I hope you find it useful too.
Until next time…
