Thanks the compliment - I thought it was neat too. I was looking for the 1939 baseball centennial covers a few years ago and this came up in an eBay search. I didn't have anything pre-1900, and so I snatched this up.

I have seen a lot of covers that are caches, like the 1939 caches. And I had seen other covers that are expanded return labels - like some of the ones pictured above. But the full on advertising was something new to me. The OJ ads are spectacular. I didn't know those existed.

Here are two letters from the mid-1870s sent by Andrew Peck (of Peck & Snyder) to a friend. I have also shown the envelopes, one of which was ornate.

Here are a few 19th century advertising letters but without the envelopes.

Default I've included the "card related" Duke letter

with envelope - despite the lack of graphics and three Ginter covers - the primitive one my favorite of the iconographic old planter.
