Posted By: <b>David M</b><p>Found this in Grandma's attic. It is clearly a post card, but not sure of collectibility/value. 2 very small tack marks on either side and crease free (no writing on back). Are these common? Looks like a high school team.<br><br><br><br><img src="http://i714.photobucket.com/albums/ww141/theflyingm/img354.jpg" alt="[linked image]"><br><br><img src="http://i714.photobucket.com/albums/ww141/theflyingm/img355.jpg" alt="[linked image]">

Posted By: <b>ScottDango</b><p>back then, many people and families, made post cards of themselves to send to family (like people still do today around the holidays)<br><br>not all PC's are catalogable (sp?) some are simply family heirlooms (or Junior High school) heirlooms...<br><br>nice clear photo though.....just cant say it has much value....

Posted By: <b>Greg</b><p>They do look young, but they all may be college freshmen -- teachers colleges were colled normal schools, and there were hundreds of them -- my college was still called a normal school up until not long before I went there in the mid 70s. <br><br>Greg

Posted By: <b>Dan Bretta</b><p>Those guys are too young for college. The first hit on google for Normal High School shows one near Bloomington founded in 1905...I'm sure there were lots of other high schools with that name.
