    I guess people here don't care about motivating and inspiring the future scientists of America
    the funds from the sale of these cards would be used for science exhibits.
    I think more respect is called for......

    Hi again Mike, FYI, I have over 50 thousand cards in my collection listed on my website www.oldqslcards.com and another 15 thousand from DX and cards not yet listed on the database. It's the goal of my project to save as many old QSL Cards as possible and try and get them back into the hands of the people they mean the most to.
    Thanks again and 73.

    These may be taken - but (for future reference) such cards might be of interest to some other radio history museum - such as the California Historical Radio Society in Alameda, CA - www.californiahistoricalradio.com
