From the OC Register

Disneyland fans have the chance to see and buy rare memorabilia right now, including an original prospectus that Walt Disney used to lure investors to the park, a cast member’s costume from Pirates of the Caribbean, artifacts from the extinct Tower of Terror ride, a 1967 body of an Autopia car, a concept drawing of the Sleeping Beauty Castle and much more.

Want a piece of the Disneyland railroad? Buy an actual wheel from a train, estimated to fetch $3,000 to $5,000. The item expected to draw the highest price is the animatronic “Fuzzball” character from the “Captain EO” attraction, which has an estimated auction value of $50,000 to $60,000.

Potential bidders for the “Remembering Disneyland” auction can view the exhibit of more than 800 items now at the Van Eaton Galleries in Sherman Oaks, bid early or big live during the auction on Saturday, Dec. 16.

“This is a very special collection because most of the items in it come from people that actually worked at the park, or had a hand in creating it,” Mike Van Eaton, Co-Founder of Van Eaton Galleries, said in a prepared statement. “They are sharing their memories with us through their stories, and through this amazing collection.”
