Mystery Solved

    These look like "linen" style postcards. Yours are very fun!

    Ah, yes! That makes sense. I believe I have heard of that term in relation to some other collectible item I had(not postcards) Great, now I know how to describe that particular texture.

    These guys came in a small window display envelope that had all 15(I posted the best) and I bought it at an estate sale for $1.50! I thought,"Poor guy. He has no idea these are worth at least $50!!"

    Well, I may have overshot my estimate just a little...I looked on eBay, and saw similar, single cards from Florida, this era(40's-50's) and "linen" style listing prices from .25- $10.00 each. One big problem: NO BIDS!

    If nobody is buying cool looking, vintage, excellent condition postcard; what kind are they buying? I'd like to know because this would be a great area to learn about, sell, and the best thing is ease of shipping!

    Anybody who knows of a good site or forum I could "audit" or if you personally want to be my tutor(just kidding-but not really ;)
