NT0497-NT0656 Novelties

This section is loaded with cards that are not easy to locate!  The cards are pretty popular too…so when you do find them, expect to pay.

We start off with the PDL cards that were produced by Hallmark.  You can find all of these cards on pages 199-202 in the Nickel Tour.

The second group of cards in this section are aerial views of the park.  These cards pop up every now and then…but it is my sense that you do not see the last four cards as often as the first four cards.  Have another opinion?  Please…let me know!

The animated cards come in a couple of different varieties.  The first four cards you see fairly often on eBay…and I suspect at card shows too.  THe last few are almost never seeen.  Thus…the VR rating.  A Donald on Casey Junior card NT0576 did appear on eBay not too long ago.  If I recall…it went for ~$250.

In 1966, Disneyland published a set of 3-D cards that mostly focused on teh Jungle Book, but there were a few (four to be exact) of Disneyland as well.  You see these cards pp up on occasion…the first four usually selling for around $25-$35 each (give or take)…the others well below that in the common range.

he following set of cards are all copies of other cards, but with super-imposed images of Disney characters on them.  These cards are fairly common in my experience, although I am not sure I have seen the NT0633 card with Goofy hitchhiking!

Finally the uber-rare…or perhaps I should say “tres rare”…French Postcards.  I have never seen these and I don’t have one.  The Nickel Tour identifies them as the second rarest set of cards next to the black and whites cards NT0085-NT0089.  Ironically, I have seen those for sale more often than these.
