Disney's paper stock certificates are heading off to Never Never Land. They are a popular gift among parents, grandparents, uncles and aunts who want to teach kids about the stock market.

Indeed. It is critically important that our children never learn anything about investing in the stock market. Perhaps that way, they will direct all of their investment activities into something secure, like gold. Or tulip bulbs.

It wasn't so much as trying to teach grandkids about the stock market, it was the collectibility of the certificate.  Most certificates are bland and boring, but Disney had their characters printed on there which people liked.  It was much the same with Ringling Bros. certificates when the circus was a public company and they had the circus animals printed on there.

Another example would be a preference for collectible stamps as opposed to plain flag stamps.

GiveAShare sells the stock in a black frame for $146. A Disney share on the New York Stock Exchange was worth nearly $64 on Wednesday.

Holy cow. What a racket.

Disney is awesome at this.

They actually get people to pay to pave new sections of their parks:

I am shocked...

that any company anywhere is still using paper stocks.
