I have not posted here in a while, but that does not mean I have not been busy! I have recently been working to upload the balance of the Disneyland Tokyo post cards that I have in my collection. (Shown here is card TD0048…the World Bazaar). I have about 80-100 Tokyo cards, and a few postcard albums. Most of the cards I have were published shortly after the park opened and make a great set of early images of the park. Other than this group, I do have some Tokyo Disney Gallery cards featuring Disneyland Anaheim concept art. These are not in the database yet, but I have put a few of them up on my Facebook page.
So…keep your eye out over the next few days/weeks as I will try to complete the addition of all the Tokyo cards in my possession to the checklist database! As to how many total Tokyo postcards exist…that is anyones guess. I was given a paper checklist (thanks Chris!) that was originally put together by Nick Farago, but it is dated and quite a few cards have been published since then to be sure. Either way though…it’s a great start. If you or someone you know is interested in making the list here more complete…please let me know.
Otherwise…I was in Anaheim today for a super quick business trip, but had time to drop by Downtown Disney to pick-up a couple new El Gato Gomez WonderGround cards. The cards feature the Jungle Cruise and Pirates of the Caribbean. Gomez does a great job of capturing the essence of these attractions! I only have room here to show the Jungle Cruise card…but I will put images of both on Facebook tonight as well.
Going forward, I will post here as often as I am able with information that will be relevant today, tomorrow and into the future. For more current everyday news on auctions and prices realized, I will likely be using the Facebook page for that. So check it out!
Until next time…
