Ebay Post Cards

I am wondering who buys these Post Cards that are always being posted on EBAY?

They are always there, it must be a decent turnover...........

I wonder is this legal? Are these reproductions of photos that are drifting around in Cyberspace?

Is the seller on this forum? Are there buyers on this forum?

Does anyone really want a copy of a post card? For what reasons? Do they send them out as post cards? Do they hang them up in their Airstreams? Do they hang them up in their homes, offices etc.......

I wonder?????????????

Question Copies? What copies?

Smily ~

I think I know of the postcards you are speaking of. They are sold in a box of 40 and were put out by Bryan Burkhart about the same time as his "Land Yacht" book in 2000. Airstream used to have them in their online store, but I don't see them there now, I didn't spend much time looking, but they didn't jump out at me.

I think what people are doing is buying the set and breaking them up into individual cards or small lots to sell on ebay. You can purchase the whole 40 postcard set from AirstreamDreams for $12.95....individual cards can sell for a buck or two....so do the math. What I don't like is the ebay sellers that pass them off as "collectable"...that is deceptive, but then again it is ebay, "Buyer Beware!" Besides, how "collectable" can they be if there are so many on ebay?

I have a set I got a couple of years ago as a gift...they are nice and we have sent a couple to family while out & about, but most of them just sit there in the box. I won't buy more if I ever get through these because it is a "been there, done that" sort of thing now...over saturated, everybody has seen them by now.

There is also a new set of 20 notecards offered for sale at Airstream Dreams based on the newer red Travel Trailer book, also $12.95...not Airstream specific but look nice, although I haven't seen them in actuality.

P.S. no, I'm not one of the postcard sellers on ebay...

pictures on the cards

Aren't some of those cards from pictures in Wally Byam's "Trailer Travel Here and Aboad" book?

Talking

Well, I do collect post cards and the ones on Ebay are the box sets. While I tend to collect railroad cards and local scenes, there are a number of cards related to camping, ie fishing sightseeing ect. I do have some cards that show vintage trailers, usually in trailer parks and campgrounds, and these are fewer and farther between. Even then it would be rare to find one offered for more than a couple of bucks.
I may have one vintage airstream card but can't say for sure.

I have purchased just two of these postcards through Ebay. Hey, I need the positive feedback points They were related to fishing and had an Airstream the same era as mine. I have them both in a single picture frame and hanging in my bathroom in the house. I'm not interested in the whole set.
