Default newbie questioning price on old postcard

Posted By: Rob Fouch

I'm a newbie when it comes to non-card baseball memorabilia and have a question. Why did this postcard sell for what seems to me a pretty high price? It's cool, I'll grant you that, but don't really understand why it closed so high. I actually lived in Parsons, W.Va., for a year when I was a kid and thought of bidding on it, but it quickly got out of my price range. I wouldn't mind adding some old postcards to my collection, particularly any that are related to my home state of W.Va., but don't know much about them. Can anyone give some tips on what to look for?

And did you notice, Dan, that I used the tinyurl site? It's very cool. Had never heard of it.

Probably a local person looking for local insterest cards.

I know that don't mind overpaying for postcards of the place where I grew up. They don't show up often, but when they do, they always sell for decent money because I will bid them up.

Scott said it best - probably just two guys that collect local items and they don't come up often. I wish I could see who the underbidders are as that might tell the whole story.

And nice use of the tinyurl.

many photo postcards go for more, many collectors of photos will bid on these - also the baseball uniforms and equipment are great added features - and can gain some interest as well. Price is still high, and am sure someone just liked the look of the postcard.

Take Care Jimmy

Thanks for the help, guys. I'll probably keep my eye out for W.Va.-related baseball postcards, and just hope that they don't go as high as that one.
