Hello Wayne,As you will see I have posters, Old magazines, 1000's of post cards all types of ship lines mostly Red Star, I have a vintage fan I have not been able to find anywhere on the internet. I am not interested in selling post cards one by one this is why I am looking for a collector. The one from MWPC is from The Department of Treasury I believe. I have lost of those pictures too. Any insight you have to offer would be helpful. Thank you so very much. Kim

Hi,The post cards are selling for $4-6 each on average.As a lot about $2 each. The NWPMC '86 was printed in cooperation with the bureau of engraving. These were given to people who attended the convention. This would be worth $10 to a collector. The Sphere magazines are selling on average of $4-8 each.Thank you,Wayne
