This card is probably from the 1950's. I'm still not great at dating cards.
Postcard and trading card collecting have a lot in common. Remember when we learned about analogies in school? Meow is to Cat and Bark is to Dog, Hat is to Head a Sock is to Foot, etc.?
I see analogies in my collecting. I'll give you my clearest example. I collect cards of my boyhood baseball hero, Ron Santo.
I've just been talking about collecting one very specific pair of cardboard subjects. They are the centerpieces of each collection. That being said I've always been one for variety. As I've branched out in trading card collecting, from cigarette cards of transportation subjects to recent sets of things like movie posters, I've done the some of the same with postcards. The number of subjects you can find is endless. Like trading cards you can store postcards in boxes or binders. They even fit in my trading card display cases.
Well, you've heard of tortured analogies. I'll torture you no further today. If I haven't inspired you to collect postcards yourself maybe I've piqued your interest in seeing more here.
