Van Eaton Galleries will conduct an exclusive online and live auction paired with a limited time exhibit of the collection that includes over 1000 pieces of memorabilia. Among the collection’s highlights are several original artworks including a rare early concept for Tomorrowland by Bruce Bushman. Bushman was one of the major designers working by Walt’s side during the park development and construction. The artwork is a very early concept and was actually featured in the 1954 series premiere of Walt Disney’s “Disneyland” television show (Estimate: $50,000-$70,000). An original Slue Foot Sue costume dress from the Golden Horseshoe (Estimate: $5,000-$7,000) used from 1956 to 1986 and worn by one of the most well-known performers in the park, Betty Taylor; an original “Pinocchio” character head from a 1968 walk-around character (Estimate: $7,000-$9,000); an etched glass E-ticket sign that hung at The Pirates of the Caribbean entrance which is one of only two made (Estimate: $15,000-$20,000); an original Disneyland Tiki Bird from the enchanted Tiki Room (Estimate: $20,000-$25,000), and a house from the Storybookland Village from the Disneyland attraction are only a few of the hundreds of items
