Haunted Mansion Hitchhiking Ghost Pin Collection

Haunted Mansion Hitchhiking Ghost Pin Collection
Have you seen the Haunted Mansion Hitchhiking Ghost pin collection?  It features the three hitchhiking ghosts; Ezra, Phineas, and Gus.
My favorite Walt Disney World pin collection is the Haunted Mansion.  I have quite a few wonderful HM pins, but not near as many as I want.  Haunted Mansion Disney pins are very hard to come by as they are collected by so many Disney pin collectors.  Pin trading for Haunted Mansion pins is hard!
I really enjoy this particular set because it features the hitchhiking ghosts in their classic poses, with their thumbs up.

I remember trying to find this set when I moved to Florida in 2009.  I found one on a CM lanyard and had to trade the other two from fellow Disney pin traders at Downtown Disney Marketplace, back when the trading tables were allowed outside of the “Pin Traders” store.

Each of the three pins were sold individually in Disney World gift shops in 2002 for $6.50 each.  After that they were often found on Cast Member lanyards throughout Walt Disney Parks and Resorts, making lots of people think they were Hidden Mickey pins.

They aren’t from the Disney hidden Mickey pin collections though.  They were rack pins for sale on the shelves in Disneyworld.

What most likely happened is that guests purchased these pins to use as traders while on vacation.

They are quite hard to find lately.  I rarely see them anywhere.  If you’re looking for this set be careful, there were Scrappers of these pins going around for a year or so.
