Variation (?)

While completing Cards #1216 thru #1320 I remembered this card; it's Nickel Tour #1287, card 0100-10486, Fantasy in the Sky. This postcard in particular was sent to those who ordered the Olympic Spirit Passport. This one happens to be one sent to the late Bruce Gordon.


The passport, shown below, was issued to commemorate the 1984 Olympics. It came with a nice medallion with a red, white and blue ribbon.

Variations 5

Let's get back to the real focus of this blog and that is Disneyland Postcards. This variation is Nickel Tour #1006, card 01110511, DT-35935-C, Matterhorn Mountain. Notice this card has clouds and a black back.



This variation is without clouds and a blue back. There's also a variation without clouds and a black back.


Also, get a look at the people in the picture. The man in the blue sweater doesn't look too happy to be there and the woman in the red definately doesn't want her picture taken.
