Postcard History and Reselling

Top 20 Most Valuable Old Postcards

Whether you are a postcard reseller, collector, or just happened to inherit a collection, knowing which postcards are the most valuable can help you determine

Meet Daniel, creator of Mailseum

I’ve been a collector my entire life. I started collecting baseball cards as a kid and spent many lazy Saturdays sorting, organizing, and enjoying my collection (and ripping off my brother in trades from time-to-time).

Like many kids that collect baseball cards, my hobby withered away as I entered adulthood and was replaced by more sophisticated hobbies, like gardening and doing puzzles. Until I discovered the hobby of postcard collecting.

Postcard collecting is everything I ever wanted from a hobby. There were millions of different views and designs produced, so no matter how long you collect, you will never run out of new material. Unlike early baseball cards, which can easily go into the thousands of dollars, postcards are very affordable and often less than $10 each.

I am committed to promoting the hobby of postcard collecting whenever and wherever I can, whether that’s through articles exploring the history of a small town, a YouTube video about selling on eBay, or telling friends about my unique side hustle. I want as many other collectors as possible to experience the unique joy of collecting postcards.
