National Postcard Week: From My Collection

It's the final day of #NationalPostcardWeek, so I'm sharing some postcards from my collection.

I discovered several years ago that I have accidentally compiled a small collection of Bettie Page postcards, so here is one more I bought since then. I'm pretty sure the other women on the card are also 1950's pin-ups, although I can't name them. I'm also pretty sure they didn't go to Rhode Island for a photoshoot; I wouldn't be surprised if the same postcards was available with other place names on it.

Here's a more modern pin-up postcard. The two pictures are die cut, like you can remove them from the postcard. Maybe they are trading cards, or stickers? I'm not going to remove them (and ruin the card) to find out...
Cutty Sark postcard

This bit of cold war humor is signed Augusto De La Pava. I can't find much about him (or this postcard series) on the Internet. Don't you hate that? You get used to finding whatever information you want on the Web, and then it fails you...

National Postcard Week: Wyoming Maps

Happy #NationalPostcardWeek! This is my fifth post of Wyoming map postcards. With three cards in each post, that's 15 postcards! (for the previous postcards, click here and here and here and here.)

This one is a reprint of a card from before, but with a border added...

Despite the smaller map than most, they felt they had to include all the old forts. And Little America too!

I love this one! It's like someone decided to draw a map in study hall...

National Postcard Week: More random cards

Oh, no, I missed a day! I won't let it happen again...

Today, some more interesting cards that came in the mail!

The first card I got from the MST3K Postcard Exchange Experiment (PEE), I think. I don't participate every month, but it's another fun way to get postcards in the mail!

NOLA with cats
From some friends who visited New Orleans. Looks like the cats are out of control!

This is the 2019 #NationalPostcardWeek postcard from the Denver Postcard Club, an organization I belong to, and in fact I helped out with the whole card selection and printing process!
Denver Postcard Club's National Postcard Week 2019 card!

The artwork is by local Colorado postcard artist Cat Comish Kerstiens, and the subject is Denver's Civic Center Park, another in our series of Denver-area landmarks.

If you'd like a postcard, the club sells them for $1 -- or you get two free if you join! If interested, just let me know...

National Postcard Week: The Cosmos

It's day two of National Postcard Week, and here are some postcards from the tourist trap in South Dakota that now calls itself Cosmos Mystery Area, but when these postcards were printed (in the late 70s or early 80s) it was simply The Cosmos! I've been to The Cosmos (at around the same time) so there is some nostalgia here, but I bought these cards because the model is so cute!

National Postcard Week: May 5-11 2019

Hey, it's #NationalPostcardWeek again! So I am going to try to share some postcards every day (although my track record isn't great)!

For the first day, it's some random (but nice) postcards that I've received in the mail recently...

Victorian Horrors 2018 Postcard
These guys always come up with nice spooky promo cards!

RMC Showcase 2019 Postcard
Did not make it to this, but glad to see that they had one guest. They're one up on Casper Comic Con!

Starfest 2019 Postcard
I did attend this, and had a good time. They seemed a little short on guests; I guess the Shatner fee didn't leave much left over...
