From Sketches Volume 7, Number 1, 1999:

Hitch a ride for the first-ever Walt Disney Art Classics Weekend, March 19-21, 1999 at Walt Disney World® Resort in Florida for two-days of entertaining seminars, special guest appearances and exclusive limited editions, including the Walt Disney Classics Collection’s “Hitchhiking Ghosts” from The Haunted Mansion!

In keeping with the theme of the convention, and to coincide with the 30th anniversary, the Walt Disney Classics Collection released the three Hitchhiking Ghosts (Phineas Queeg, Gus Gracey & Ezra Dobbins). 

"Beware of Hitchhiking Ghosts," a three-piece Numbered Limited Edition (NLE) of 1,500 sculpture set was sculpted by Patrick Romandy-Simmons

Thanks Bob! Really miss the WDAC Conventions. They knew how to put on a convention!

Hoping to do more of these type of blog entries in the future, associating releases with anniversaries, looking back on the older pieces.

Keep the 20th Anniversary momentum going!
