1955 Disneyland Green Press Preview Ticket - Or "Ebay Madness"

Just when you thought you’ve seen everything, here is an amazing EBay auction.

I’ve seen these “Press Preview” tickets before, but never the green one. The silver ones does go for a few hundred bucks, hence the reason I don’t have one!

The auction description claims this to be the “Holy Grails of Disneyland Ticket Collectors” – Well, at least from my perspective, it’s not that fantastic. Jed over at Vintage Disneyland Goodies has posted ticket items that I feel are more desirable (to me at least).

Here is the listing, starts at $895, buy-it-now for on $1000.(EBay Link)






Here is a copy of the “Silver” ticket (Thanks Keeline.com). Is it just me or do these seem easy to duplicate? I have heard stories of all the counterfeit passes made for 7/17/55. This auction looks like the real thing, but a grand? Come on… Do you think it will sell??




If you have one of these (Silver, green or Gold) could you email a scan of it when you have a change?????? (mailto:VintageDisneylandTickets@Gmail.com).

See you tomorrow

I don't know how easy these would be to duplicate, with the silver ink. I would love to get a green and/or gold version! Another Disney blogger once had all of the colors of preview tickets (I wanted to buy them but didn't have the dough!). I might be mistaken, but I thought there was a white version as well?

I think I've seen a white version too!!! I guess it's probably not "easy" to duplicate, but we have one of the 100k color copiers at work and it does amazing things, I've seen it make copies that are too close for comfort.

At one time or another, I've had silver, gold, silver and white. I still have the gold. Never seen the orange version outside of an Anaheim museum many years ago.

Well jedblau, that makes sense, since you were the guy who I meant (when I said that somebody had 'em all)! I am still kicking myself for not buying at least one, but I had just bought some posters from you.

Didn't even know about the orange version!

Hey VTD- The price being asked is not out of line on the Green opening day ticket. There are definitely less out there than the silver and gold tickets. And just look at how much the used ticket books just got a couple of weeks ago. And as far as the reproduction or counterfit tickets, that may be a myth as I have never seen one that looked like a counterfit ticket. Remember printing technology in 1955 was not what it is today. Being on metallic coated paper, it is rather difficult to fake them. Even today the paper is tough to fake and a reproduction would stick out.
