Organizers are anticipating hundreds of attendees over a two-day period when the Greater Tulsa Oklahoma Antique Postcard & Paper Americana Show and Sale gets underway in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma, Friday and Saturday, May 11-12.
This year's new feature is a display board competition of club members’ and attendees’ specialized collection. A $50 gift certificate will be awarded to the Best of Show. In addition, the Tulsa Postcard Club will have a table providing informational materials about their meetings and events.
"The Tulsa area has always been fascinating for postcard collectors because of the great heritage of Indian Territory, mining in northeast Oklahoma, the Five Civilized Tribes, early settlers, and of course the huge oil and gas booms throughout the states’ history,” said Jim Taylor, show producer. “Our vendors go to great lengths to bring fresh original Oklahoma historical material and photographs to this show."
The Annual Tulsa Postcard Club show involves buyers and sellers from seven states bringing nearly one million antique postcards for sale, as well as buying collections and accumulations, and providing free appraisals of most all vintage postcards, old photographs, and paper ephemera.
Thousands of vintage Route 66 view postcards will be for sale. Lots of historical photos of Oklahoma, Texas, Arkansas, Kansas, Native Americans, Civil War, Western Americana, Rodeo, Movie, Railroadiana, Oklahoma and Indian Territory, Victorian era, Kewpies, 101 Ranch, and 1000's of other topical and state view postcards and other historical paper memorabilia and ephemera for sale. Many of our dealers are buying, and doing free appraisals, time permitting. Archival supplies for all paper collectibles are also available for sale.
