Well today is the official Talk Like A Pirate Day.
Instead of talking like a buffoon all day I’m going to share with you some real pirate booty!
When Disneyland’s Pirates of the Caribbean first opened in March 1967, the “Pirate Arcade” at the exit (now a pirate gift shop) contained a vending machine that sold two sets of pirate postcards, each a set of six.
All twelve postcards contained some of Marc Davis’ original concept artwork for the attraction and all twelve were only available from that vending machine for not-very-long.
I recently came into possession of a complete set of these cards and I’m making them available today in the spirit of all things piratical!
