My Postcard Collection

These are the roughly 800 postcards that I had collected as a youngster — I doubt there’s more than 2 dozen post 1980.
Where or how I got them all I have no clear recollection. Sometimes it was just old relatives and family friends that were getting rid of stuff — other times I went to the places as a kid and bought them as my souvenir, rather than take a picture. I bought a few at various yard sales and flea markets. More than 1/2 have never been used — the other half have messages and stamps from wherever the people who sent them were. And then, roughly 1980 I put them in a box, where they’ve remained ever since. Now, they’re for sale.
