Please note this is not a commercial business but an educational website. We do not buy or sell any products, and we do not accept advertising. While I am happy to advise on postcard questions, this is not an appraisal service to evaluate your cards.
Submissions of corrections, information, and pictures to this web page are welcome and should be sent to the Webmaster. Please do not inform me of information I am missing unless you are supplying me with that information. If there are gaps in this site it is because I do not have an image or enough information to make a posting, it is not a deliberate omission. Please do not send attachments except for pictures. All pictures should be scanned, not photographed, at 100% resolution, 150 dpi, in baseline jpg format.

Every month meetings are held at the New Yorker Hotel, 8th Avenue at 34th Street in New York City, 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. They usually take place on the second Sunday of the month unless a special postcard show is scheduled. Many members attend to spend a few pleasant hours in the company of fellow collectors. These meetings are short on formality with most time given over to the sale and exchange of postcards and good conversation. A few times a year the Club holds fundraising events where many interesting cards and ephemera can often be found. Every September we hold a postcard album competition, which is not only a way to win a prize but to see the many varied collections of members. In December we end each year with a Holiday party, with complimentary food and drink for all. Meetings are free to all members.
The club hosts two large three day postcard shows a year, usually in May and November, where collectors can peruse the stock of dealers from across the nation to around the world. There is no better way of finding cards than to see them in person. These shows are open to the general public but members may attend at discounted rates.
