Vintage memorabilia is all the rage, these days. A retro line featuring tee shirts and hats with colorful 70s designs has been available at Walt Disney World Resort and on shopDisney for some time. While these new designs are enticing, many of us long for authentically vintage Disney items. Here, we’re going to share some original retro Disney items currently for sale on eBay! Keep in mind, these products will likely be available for a limited time only.
Orange Bird Shirt (Large) – $65.00 USD

Youth Figment EPCOT Center Cap – $50.00 USD
Figment, the purple dragon, may be more beloved than Orange Bird! Figment first appeared in the attraction Jouney into Imagination in 1983. This cap must have been released around that time, because the theme park dropped the “center” from its official name in 1994. This white cotton cap features Figment himself, with a paintbrush in hand. The space beside the character features the original name of the park: EPCOT Center. You can get this cap today for $50.00 USD or best offer. Click here to view.
