A Disney World Postcard Oddity

Recently I have been picking up some random lots of cards online where it isn’t entirely clear what cards will be included in the lot.  I love this sort of thing…it’s like “Let’s Make a Deal” – if you remember that game show.  You pick a curtain, take a little WDW-01110236risk, and hope for the best.  Sometimes you get what you expected, sometimes you get a variant that you didn’t have, and sometimes you get a rarity like that pressed penny card from a couple weeks back.

I don’t think I have any cards in my collection that have a totally blank back.  If I do, they would be buried somewhere in the recesses WDW-01110236_0001of the shoeboxes I store all my cards in, waiting to be discovered.  But as part of this recent lot…I did find a blank backed card.  It’s a variant on 01110236 dp 79905-C.  According to a fellow collector (you know who you are), there are three variants of this card;  one with the Florida penant on the back, one without the penant (like the one I show here), and one with a “W” after the primary card number in the stamp box.  As I said though, the card I got the other day is totally blank on the back.  Go figure!  Either way, this is a great card that has three classic Disney characters included.

As an aside, speaking of Mickey, Pluto and Goofy – if you have never checked out the early Walt Disney Comics and Stories comic books from the 1940’s and 1950’s, they are a real treat.  Mickey has a lot of wacky adventures with these two dogs!

Checklist Update

Things have stalled a little on data entry…but that won’t be the case for long.  So keep your eyes peeled for changes.  I am still thinking of having the entire NT database loaded by end of July (text only).  I am working on scans too…slowly but surely.

Until next time…

About Todd

Hello. I have been collecting Disneyland postcards and paper items for a few years now and figured I would start to share my collection with any and all who are interested. I actually started blogging on Blogger (sundrycollectibles.blogspot.net) but after a while realized I wanted a dedicated Disney site since it is a fairly niche hobby. Enjoy!
