    Hello my DPF friends! I am very happy to say that I have another pin that I think is worthy of your consideration. I hope you will enjoy biding on this little beauty!

    So what do we need for a good auction? Well, a low LE is a good start and there are only 400 of this one. But you also need a good wants/trades ratio and this one has....wait for it...296 wanting and just 36 trading! Are you one of those 296? Well, then here she is...Pascal from Disneyland Paris Pin Trading Night! (#97066 on PinPics) Check out the pictures below.

    I have a TON of wants on PinPics under AJK so it should be very easy to make a bid. And I am very open to any and all bids! But to help guide you a bit:

    Top of my list:
    - DSF Dark Tales and WDI Storybooks. My biggest wants right now.
    - Villain/Heroine profiles and Beloved Tales. Of course.
    - My many grails. But especially Love is Daring chaser from LIAA event. STILL driving me crazy!
    - PODMs. Recent auctions inspired me to work on the rest of these.
    - Chasers from the 2013 Pixar Mystery Collection. Got a focus on this set currently.

    Next batch:
    - Moana. Just starting this one so need them all.
    - Villains. Especially Maleficent. And especially Windows of Evil. I have them all so far, but wouldn't mind extras to trade for the ones yet to come.
    - Nightmare Before Christmas. Especially if they are parts of sets I haven’t finished. But really anything nice.
    - Alice in Wonderland. Especially anything that’s a bit different.
    - Park rides and attractions. Especially WDW first and then DL.

    After that:
    - Anything else on my long list of wants
    - Any good traders.

    Prefer not:
    - Hidden Mickeys. Unless they are one of my grails.
    - Princesses. Unless they are one of my wants.

    Please don’t:
    - Fantasy
    - Scrappers
    - Fakes

    As for the other details, this auction will close on Sunday, May 20th, at 9:00 PM EASTERN TIME.

    And with that, I wish everyone Good Luck, and let the bidding begin!

    Work is done and the weekend's begun! Great time for more bids. Just two more for a leaderboard!

    Also, I should probably point out that I didn't post this one for very much time. It ends Sunday night!

    More bids = More fun. Anyone going to give AshleyV some competition?

    Just NINE MORE HOURS until AshleyV walks away with this beauty! Plenty of time to get in on the action!

    I can't see from your pic if there's a specific number listed in the limited edition box on the backstamp? (Unfortunately, the fakes of this series tend not to have an individual number listed on the back - and that concern may be keeping other bidders away.) Also, does it come on the original card?

    Yes, it is #399. (Specifically, it says “399/400”.) I’ll try to upload more of a zoomed in photo in a moment. I’m afraid I don’t have the card. But if it helps, besides having every sign of a legitimate pin (and I’ve been collecting for 18 years) I received it from @Rasputin recent pin game and I know they have an extremely positive reputation. I hope that helps put you at ease if you were considering a bid!

    Here’s the best shot I can get of the number. Hopefully it’s clearer here.

    A photo of that # (which is a cool one by the way - penultimate #) and provenance from Rasputin is a good thing!

    Let me go take a look at your wants and see if I might have something that fits. :)

    Not from your wants list, but would fit into the park rides and attractions category:

    Pin 348 DL - 1998 Attraction Series - Carousel of Progress

    Been realizing my trade bag is getting sparse on lower LE's, so this cute Pascal would be welcome if the Carousel pin happens to be one you'd like if you don't have it already! It's on the original card, for reference.

    Thanks for a GREAT bid! That pin certainly fits in with my collections. And those early ones are pretty cool!

    Since we are just a few hours out from the end of this auction, I am going to go ahead and post a leader board:

    1. AshleyV - #122760, the Pinocchio WDI Storybook
    2. Jabberwocky - #348 - DL - 1998 Attraction Series - Carousel of Progress

    Still seven hours to go on this great pin that has been verified as not only legitimate but with a "cool" number! :D

    Lol my wants are literally what's in my sig. :)

    So at this point if I have a trader that someone wants for their collection, I'm happy to work out a trade for just something comparable I can use for trade. :)
