Have you been following along with the That's From Disneyland exhibit/auction? Richard Kraft, a Disney super-fan and dedicated collector, has amassed one of the largest Disneyland collections in the world. His "That's From Disneyland" collection was on display for most of the month of August in Sherman Oaks, California and just this past weekend the items went up for auction and boy did they bring in the dough! We want to mention that Richard Kraft is donating a portion of the money earned from the auction to organizations helping children with Coffin-Siris Syndrome, which his daughter has.
Want to see the best of the collection and auction results? You've come to the right place!
We're going to take a look at the items that went for the highest amounts, as well as some pretty good bargains...you know, if a $16,000 trash can could ever really be considered a bargain. Let's do this!
(Please forgive the quality of some of these pics. We tried to get screen shots from the live auction itself so you could get a good feel for the action!)
$100,000 and Up!
- $100,000 for a Matterhorn ride vehicle

- $230,000 for a sign that used to be at the Pirates of the Caribbean entrance
