We appraise, acquire, and purchase postcards
 
Throughout the year, our club acquires postcard collections, both small and large, to be auctioned off in lots at our monthly auctions. Some of the collections are purchased by the club, and.....some are donated to our club in an effort to support our cause.  If you have a collection you would like to dispose of, or if you know someone who does, we would like to hear from you! 

How does it work?  We have an appraisal committee which consists of 3 experienced postcard collectors.  Each one independently appraises the collection being considered.  We then use these appraisals to determine the appraisal price or offer. 
 
Please note: Since postcard appraisals can be very time consuming, we regret that we only appraise collections that we are considering for acquisition or purchase. We do not provide appraisals simply to establish a value for the owner, for insurance purposes, etc.

Ultimately, we want to find a good home for all postcards by placing them in the hands of collectors who truly appreciate their history and significance.  However, we also would like to: 
1) Serve as an outlet for people who want to dispose of their collection
2) Give everyone an opportunity to acquire reasonably priced postcards at our auction
3) Help cover the escalating operating costs of our club 

Please contact any one of our appraisal committee members below.  They would be happy to help with any questions!  Thank you!
