Disney collection on eBay


#1

There’s an interesting story in the Orlando paper about a guy trying to sell his 12,000-piece Disney collection on eBay. Asking price: $399,000. I searched both current and completed auctions on eBay but couldn’t find it.


#2

From what the article says he withdrew the auction which is why you probably didn’t see it. Sounds like he is talking privately with a couple of people…1500 square feet…whew! That’s alot of Mickey!!


#3

I would just like to SEE it…too bad he doesn’t have a website or something.

I bet he’s got some cool stuff.


#4

The article isn’t clear about whether he cancelled the auction or the auction ran its course and didn’t meet the reserve price – in which case it would have shown up as a completed auction. At any rate, if he were to sell the collection at the $399,000 asking price it would cost him approximately $6,000 in eBay auction fees.

All I can think of is $$$$$$$$! But I would love to check out his ebay site! Wow! And I always wondered if there is a 100% complete collection of pins somewhere… maybe at the official Disney pin office, or something!

My brother-in-law sent me the link to that listing a few days ago. I’ll check & see if I still have it. The picture was unreal! I’ve never seen so much Disney stuff in my life! I told him I’d have to get rid of a kid or two to make room for that collection at my house! :tongue:


#7

O.K., I found it. Eat your hearts out!!!

I would love to see ALL of them in one place–that would be cool!


#9

Yeah, I checked that out a few days ago. Even I don’t want that much Mickey stuff! It’s too bad he doesn’t want to mess with it anymore- he’d probably make a lot more money selling it piece by piece.

OMG!!! :eek: That is AMAZING!!! What a FUN room!!


#11

THANKS SO MUCH! Actually I saw this collection on TV once!!! They were showing collections across the U.S.! I so wish I could be that person :angel:. This has now motivated me to take my Mickey collection to a whole new level! I’m going to go buy some bookcases and start it I’ll check back with updates in a month :tongue:


#12

Heavens to mergatroid!! I’d rather buy a HOUSE with all that money!?! I wish we had pictures!


#13

Wow! You only need a month?? Haha! That collection is so cool! It looks like it didn’t sell so maybe we still have a shot at it?? :tongue:


#14

Heheh OK my goal is 1 month to get atleast 500 things that are Mickey! And I think someone should buy a house then we all pitch in for the collection and put it in the house and name it DC museum :wink:. Let’s have a fundraiser! Whoope :tongue:


#15

Okay, hmmm, I wonder how many of our friends and families that think we are nuts anyway because we love Disney so much will help our cause? :tongue:


#16

Hehe we DCers have very crazy minds. And I’m afraid to think of what people would pitch in for ideas of kinds of fundraisers to do :tongue:


#17

He listed shipping at $2,000! Wow, that was one big auction.


#18

Thats pretty amazing!


#19

I saw that auction a few days ago, when it was first put online.

I’m sorry, and I know I’ll get smacked for this, but that’s ridiculous. Why on earth do you need, or would want all those Mickey stuffies? Especially when 3/4 of them look exactly the same! I’d take the cabinetry, but donate everything else. Get a new religion.

smack…smack…lol…really i thought i had a big collection, i really like the cabinets too, realy though how could you not get a smile on your face walking thru there everyday, guess were all different…but thats a good thing :)…
