I collect Post Cards of places I have been and ones people have sent me. My goal is to have at least one post card from each state and country. I have been collecting post cards since I was a kid.

I used to collect the picture post cards in 1970's. I had thousands of them. I do not buy them, instead I used to collect it from people, which were sent to them by their friends and relatives when they were touring the places all over the world. In 1930's and 1940's, people especially US and UK (I donot know about other countries) used to write beautifully, explaining about the places they visit, the climatic condition etc and these cards were posted at Ports where the ships anchored. It had a postal mark of that port with a stamp of that country where the port was located. These post cards usually fetch $5 to $10 and more if they were some dignitaries and luminaries. If you leave your address, I shall post some cards from India which have lovely scenic and historial views.
