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.
