When I first stumbled across a set of old Disney postcards at an estate sale about 10 years ago, I bought them because I thought they were interesting and because I figured they might have some value. The set was made up of a number of Jumbo cards and some other regular sized chrome cards.
At the time I was more interested in the value of the cards and I didn’t plan on keeping them. But I didn’t know “boo” about these things so I went around to some local dealers and asked questions. One of the guys (he was in a shop that I think is long gone now), said, “Oh…Jumbo’s, those are worth something”. Eventually I found the Nickel Tour book, read through that, saw a few sales on eBay…and then (unfortunately) sold all the cards from that lot.
Ever since then I have been recovering Jumbo cards that I had in that lot…and also acquiring ones I didn’t have. This is one such card. It is not common, at least not on eBay. So when one popped up last week I had to get it. A rather rare card…and some great shots of Main Street, U.S.A. !
Until next time…
