Help me make my wifes day......

Hello everyone,
My wife is a fellow Disney fanatic. She mentioned one time she missed out on a purchase she regrets missing. It was for a gift that was given ( I believe) to the charter members of the Grand Californian vacation club. It was some kind of plaque of the front stained glass doors.
I have looked all over for it and have had zero luck. Does anyone know what this item was called or have any other information about this? Thanks a lot.

I honestly don't know what you're referring to, but I always look on eBay for this kind of stuff.

Could this be it?

No, it wasn't a pin, it was a plaque. By thanks for looking. I check eBay daily.

VGC founding members received a framed 3-panel wood block print, a picture of the artwork is shown here.

Description from the letter received with the artwork:
Quote:
As a Founding Member, we would like to honor you with a piece of the Resort to cherish forever. It's a one-of-a-kind wood block print from world-renowned artist Yoshiko Yamamoto that will hang in every room in the Resort. Capturing the style of the Resort with a unique process, the artist creates an astounding reproduction of the architecture on actual wood.
To give you an idea of size, the dimensions are approx. 42 x 22 inches (including the frame).

These were not a purchased item. These were the free perk for founding members. I doubt they'd be easy to find Ebay. I mean, if people were the first group to buy into a new resort, I should think they'd want to keep their souvenir. Disney has been giving some sort of "Reward" for early purchasers of a new resort for the last few resorts.
