Walt Disney's Daughter Called Phil Sears' Museum Contribution
"One of the Most Valuable Things Our Museum Can Offer to Our Visitors."

The late Diane Disney Miller left a lasting legacy with-- among other achievements-- The Walt Disney Family Museum.  Phil Sears is honored that a Walt Disney letter from his collection is a star exhibit at the Walt Disney Family Museum.  Diane Disney Miller said:

"This is such an important letter, and to be able to display the original, in my dad's hand, is, to me, one of the most valuable things our museum can offer to our visitors.  When I first discovered this letter I was so touched by it .. the very young Walt, practically penniless, living with his uncle and working out of his uncle's garage, but presenting himself as an established producer offering an opportunity to Mrs. Davis' little daughter.  I'm certain that the absurdity of his situation never occurred to him, just the possibilities that it presented.  He had confidence in his own ability, and had just persuaded his brother Roy to join with him.  This was the beginning of something wonderful."

You can see the letter in person at the Walt Disney Family Museum in San Francisco, or click HERE for a virtual view.

1960's Electric Disneyland Monorail Train by Schuco
Tested and Guaranteed to Run!
(Most photos clickable for a larger view)
The finest Disneyland toy ever produced! Beginning in 1961 the Schuco company manufactured this precision-made electric monorail train to the highest German standards.  Almost 15" long, these ELEVATED trains were produced for only a few short years and then production  closed forever. The finely crafted train was expensive by 1960s standards and few could afford them.  Not the cheap battery-operated "kids" monorails produced by Disney recently, but 18 volt DC powered electric train sets with variable speed in forward and reverse, with metal trim (just the way Imagineer Bob Gurr designed the full size originals)!  A transformer was not included with these sets (!) but the trains will run from any standard American 12 to 20 volt electric train transformer (I highly recommend the LGB 50081 transformer available on eBay for about $80).  

 This train has been tested and is guaranteed to run!
This monorail has been tuned up and runs really well.  Even the four Sante Fe logo decals are present, which is uncommon.  You receive 16 pieces of track with this set, along with14 pylons!  Add a transformer and this train is ready to go!  All the accessories are present INCLUDING the original Schuco black and red wires AND the German 16 page manual. I have included a photocopy of the instructions and my own tip sheet for setting up your Schuco Monorail and making it run like a charm.  Some rubbed paint on the silver nosecone windows, otherwise very good condition.  An amazing Disneyland model train set, still ready to ride the rails after 60 years!

Yes, that's right:  75 cents for a child to get into Disneyland! To be fair, most rides and attractions required separate tickets, but this 1967/1968 Disneyland Main Gate Admission reminds us of a simpler time.  Ticket is in pristine condition.  Measures 5" long.  I have several of these, each identical, except serial number will vary (all are in the same very low number range).  Item # 7443, $249.95

  The art for this serigraph cel was carefully selected by Disney artists from the actual 1942 animation drawing used to produce the original film. The artists used the master print of the film as their color guide. The serigraphy artisans created separate screens, one for each color, from which the edition was created, one color at a time. By using the meticulous serigraph silk-screen process this beautiful result was achieved.  After this edition was produced, the screens used to produce it were destroyed to ensure a true limited edition.  Measures 14" by 11".  Disney seal of authenticity in lower right corner.  This sericel was originally sold with a white background; in addition we will include a complimentary color photocopy background.  Item # 4692, $99.95
