Error 3

Just about any Disneyland postcard collector has the following card in their collection; it's Nickel Tour #0440, card E-8, Submarine Falls.

But are you sure you have this one? Take a look at the back.

Take a CLOSER look.

Take a look at the card in your collection and see if this is the one. It's definately a card you wouldn't suspect unless you were out looking for it. I came across this strictly by accident.

Latest Aquisition 2 / Error 2

First of all, Happy belated New Year to everyone.

Just got back from a Vintage Paper Fair (Postcard Show) and must say was quite successful. These days, with the size of my collection, if I come away from a show with a card or two I'm doing good. This time I came away with seven; one of them is Nickel Tour #1465, card 0100-11404, The Wildest Ride in the Wilderness. This one qualifies as both a Latest Aquisition and an Error.

But wait, this isn't a Disneyland postcard. It's an image of Walt Disney World's Big Thunder Railroad.

But if you check out the back of the card you'll notice it was sold at Disneyland. I wonder how long they lasted on the racks before being pulled?
