Show and Event Schedule
for the
Metropolitan Postcard Club
and Important Club News


Meetings - On the second Sunday of every month, with the exception of Spring and Autumn show dates, the Metropolitan Postcard Club holds meetings. These are not formal meetings as only a brief amount of business is discussed. They are more in the line of friendly get-togethers where collectors and dealers of any experience can meet to buy and sell postcards. Members of the Club pay no fees to attend or to set up to sell at our meetings, with only a small fee charged for dealers. Our meetings are also open to the general public for an admission fee of a mere $2.00, which is waived for the first visit. At certain times of year the Club hosts special events such as fund raising sales, album competitions, and holiday parties. If you are a novice or are just thinking of becoming a collector, there will plenty of expert advice for the taking. Please feel free to come and join us.

Shows - The Metropolitan Postcard Club sponsors two special shows every year. Each November and June we hold a two or three day events where approximately thirty-five to forty postcard dealers from around the nation to around the world attend to introduce their cards to you. The postcards to be found here range from discount boxes to artist signed cards and hard to find rarities. Both shows are a great way to find cards. Shopping on the internet is in no way comparable to holding a card in your hand and seeing it with your own eyes. Just throgh the act of browsing you will gain a greater familiarity with postcards that will make you a more knowledgeable and better collector. And of course it is only at shows that you may find interesting conversation about cards and collecting. If you have never been to one of our postcard shows, please plan to attend, you will be pleasantly amazed.


All Club meetings and shows take place at the

Midtown Holiday Inn
440 West 57th Street, between 9th & 10th Avenues,
New York City.

Dealers wishing to participate in either shows or meetings

World War One: Through the Artists Eye
Official war photographers were kept busy at the front but the vast amount of work they produced never reached the public due to censorship. To help satiate the enormous hunger for war news, postcard publishers sought the help of artists who obliged them with as much work as they could handle. Alan Petrulis will present a tour through this array of realistic to fanciful postcard imagery in a talk starting 9:00 a.m. on Saturday, November 15th.
