Back of pin: Official Pin Trading 2003 logo, Disneyland® Resort, Limit Edition of 1500, ©Disney, China.
Each of the pins comes on a decorative backer card that shows a wooden picture frame and turquoise Mickey heads on a blue background.
Back of the card says: Disneyland® Attraction Posters first appeared in the summer of 1956, offering a visual method of enticing guests to visit the many Disneyland® rides and attractions. The bold use of color is a vivid example of an art style popular in the 1950's. The original series totaled 17 designs, which were routinely revised and updated to remain current. Bjorn Aronson is credited with the earliest concepts, while other posters are attributed to Claude Coats, Rolly Crump, Mary Blair and Paul Hartley. This Disneyland® Exclusive Limited Edition set of pins pays tribute to the art styles and the early artists of Disneyland®.
