Souvenir Friday- Matterhorn Patches
In the recent Disneyland auction there was a large group of uniform patches for sale. However, one of the patches was not a costume patch, but was a souvenir item sold in the Emporium. The patch in question was the small shield shaped Matterhorn patch that sold for several hundred dollars. The way to tell if the patch is a Disneyland used costume patch is to look for the word BOBSLEDS in the blue field next to the depiction of the Matterhorn mountain. As you can see, the patch without BOBSLEDS was sold for 50 cents in a plastic bag. Of course the souvenir patch does have some value, but not the value of a Disneyland used costume patch.
