The first-ever
U.S. "Postcard Phone Card"
was an instant success!

Issued at Mary L. Martin's International Postcard & Paper Expo in Orlando, Florida, in January 1996, the limited issue (500 cards) sold out immediately to enthusiastic collectors. Patterned after the "large letter linen" style of postcards that were popular during the 1940's and 1950's, the phone card reads "Greetings from Florida" and features several images associated with that state: oranges, palm trees, a fisherman, a bathing beauty - even a circus elephant, perched atop the letter "A"!

We were able to acquire a small number of these popular and attractive "postcard" phone cards, and we are now offering them on a first-come, first-served basis. Each 3-3/8" x 2-1/8" card is in excellent condition, and is protected by its own sleeve.

Price (postpaid anywhere in the world):
One card: $15.00.
Two cards: $13.00 each ($26.00).
Three or more cards: $10.00 each.
Supplies are very limited (we have fewer than 20 left in stock) so place your order now!

We DO NOT accept CHARGE CARDS, and HERE'S WHY: We talked to the charge card companies, but they want 5 percent off the top of whatever we sell, and we don't feel like giving it to them. (Before you write and tell us that we can negotiate a better deal than 5 percent, we know that. But whether it's 3 or 4 or 5 percent, we still don't feel like raising the prices to "cover" it, as they say.) Maybe someday we'll do it, as soon as we're convinced that most of our customers want us to raise our prices.
