Ferndale, WA (PRWEB) May 14, 2007
Imagine thirty years spent collecting Donald Duck – buying every Donald Duck item in site and receiving from friends around the world – Donald Duck items that date back to 1936.
Flash forward to year 2007 and the collection is no mere hobby and certainly no longer a lark; in fact consisting of over one thousand unique Disney Donald Ducks, the comprehensive collection may be the world’s largest personal Donald Duck collection in the world! It is what Carol and Dave “Duckman”, the owners of this amazing collection, have amassed over their lifetime, and it is all going up at eBay auction. And to make it even more exciting, Dave and Carol are thrilled to be able to donate 10% of the sale to Florida’s Coast-to-Coast Chapter of the American Red Cross. Central Florida, like many areas in the country, has been hard hit with tornados, hurricanes, and recent drought, and the benefactors of this couple’s generosity will be many.
This huge personal collection at auction includes US copyrights: Walt Disney Enterprises (1930s), Walt Disney Productions (1939-1984), Disney and Disney Enterprises (1984 to present), as well as Donald Ducks from around the world.
From first edition Donald Duck comic books to current retail items and everything in between, this dizzying array includes games of various types: Vintage toys, puzzles, bobble heads, squeaky toys, riding toys, swim toys, pull toys, dolls, inflatables, plushes, Pelham Puppets and marionettes. Also included are artwork and autographs, collector plates, vintage cookie jars, tumblers and mugs; World War II items; clocks and watches; jewelry, pins, books and banks; Rocket Pops and a bubble blower; posters, kites, signage, cartoons and patches. Donald Duck in celluloid, wood, Bakelite, bisque, tin litho, resin, cast metal, Syroco, rubber, plastic, vinyl, die-cast, die-cut, porcelain, ceramic, pewter, silver, crystal, gold figurines and more.
Why there is just about every Donald Duck imaginable — even a vintage costume and a cake pan. This is an incredibly robust Disney Donald Duck collection. Items spanning 74 years, some in original packaging and hundreds of rare Donald Duck items. For example, holdings include one of the last autographs — written on a menu from the whistle-stop tour that celebrated Donald’s 50th birthday — of Clarence Nash, the original and only voice of Donald Duck for over 50 years. Next year, Donald Duck, loved by millions around the world, will celebrate his 75-year anniversary.
According to Tom Burke of 2NicePeople at eBay and InternetSalesService.com, “Over one-thousand-two-hundred individual unique items in this huge Donald Duck collection have been captured in over 3,000 Donald Duck pictures , and will be shown in ten different photo galleries in the auction ad at eBay now, and ending May 20, 2007.”
In the thirty years of collecting, thousands of hours were spent and incalculable dollars invested in this unprecedented Disney Donald Duck collection.
