Hospital Post Card Collection - no seals tied on


Fantastic collection of 1500+ hospital postcards put together decades ago by a local collector, sorted by state with strength in Ohio. Many early cards, mostly mint, but some postally used. Some duplication, but great variety. Condition F-VF, with few damaged cards. 3 shoeboxes, 24 inchs of cards, includes state hospitals, veterans hospitals, children's hospitals, university hospitals, private hospitals, church affiliated hospitals, etc. Some undoubtedly treated tuberculosis, but none specifically say so, however, it is likely that a little research would yield many TB cards. Average price >35 cents per card - cheap $499.00
