ClassicDisneyPostcards.com FAQ

What is a classic Disney postcard?
A classic Disney postcard, as that term is used herein, is a postcard which pictures any Disney originated character or artwork and that was published prior to July 17,1955. Also included are cards from any Disney-themed series which began prior to the 1955 start date, but continued in the same set or style after this ending date.

Why is your critical date July 17, 1955?
For those of you who may somehow not be familiar with this special date, it is the day that Disneyland opened! With the opening of this fabulous theme park, the Disney postcard landscape changed forever. The focus moved away from what had primarily been European produced cards that pictured characters and movies to a United States-based production that focused on scenes of the park and its attractions. In simplest terms, classic cards are pre-theme park cards. Note that with most "rules" involving classic Disney cards, we may occasionally "bend" our ending date in order to describe as "classic" a card or a publisher that has rightfully earned this status.

Why was this site created?
If you have ever tried to find information about the classic cards, you already know that there is very little compiled information about them either in conventional print or on the Internet. However, we are firmly convinced that there are a host of collectors who each have some small but important piece of this early publication puzzle and would like to share that information. What has been lacking is a location that is dedicated to the acquisition and publication of such information so that all Disney fans can appreciate and enjoy it. Our hope is that this site will provide such a focal point for research,study, and information sharing.

That being said, this site was also created to introduce other postcard collectors and Disney enthusiasts of all sorts to the diversity of Classic Disney postcards and to instill the "thrill of the chase" in many more new collectors!!
