I heard that a true collector does not simply accept any item into their collection but specifically seeks out certain items that meet clearly defined criteria. People like me would then be more of amasser.
Although, I still love getting any postcards as there is so much enjoyable to be surprised by the diversity and at time bizarreness of postcards and more rewarding to find patterns after the fact.
But after a couple recent donations to the Collection by my daughter, I have found my favourite Deltiology niche – superhero postcards.
Earlier this summer, my daughter found a Wolverine postcard and gave it to me. Then a few weeks later, she gave me these super items that she got in a McDonalds’ Happy Meals:
Even the backsides of the postcards are spectacular, here are two examples:
Suffice to say, it was a Happy Meal indeed!
But I don’t have very many superhero postcards so I’d gladly welcome any donations! Excelsior!
