Postcards Can't Post or Reply Privately

Looking through my stuff here I realise I have quite a few football ground postcards, mainly non league. A set with a yellow border, some with red border and a number of more recent full picture postcards. I was wondering if there were any others produced or if there is a list of these anywhere?
Also, on the subject, does anybody here collect postcards of towns? I have to get one from wherever I visit and have amassed 4 albums worth from virtually every major town and city in England, it is quite an interesting collection to look through Smile

If you have a tourist info office perhaps you would be kind enough to see if there is such a thing as a Crewe postcard for me? Even a local card or gift shop may have one. It is often the case with most towns that only one shop will stock them.

I believe the ones with yellow borders were done by the Groundtastic guys, and that Mike Floate also did some excellent ones of league & non-league grounds

Thanks, nice card, seems to be part of another series I didn't know about, does anyone else have any of these football ground postcards similar to the Crewe one on eBay?
Must be collectable at that price Shocked

Re: [Tim] Postcards [In reply to] Can't Post or Reply Privately

Nice.
I do have 2 cards from my visit to Stourbridge, I only get current colour cards generally unless there are none available in which case it is sometimes possible to find black and white historical views at a local museum.
I believe there is quite a market in the really old cards, hopefully one day my collection will be of value but personally I just enjoy looking back through the places I've been to in a similar way many people do with their football programmes.
Cool

Its a card with 3 views of the town on.
I am guessing that wasn't the answer you were hoping for? Unsure
By some coincidence I was just about to return to this thread as I have been counting up the number of different places I have cards for and the grand total for England is 450, I'm still checking through the latest additions though.

For anyone who's interested, just finished going through the collection and the grand total of postcards for the Towns and Cities in Britain that I have visited is 504 Shocked
Also, a number of places I have not been able to get a card from will appear on a future post when I have cross referenced with other records Wink
No excuse for towns not to produce a card in my opinion because if Barking and Ilford do then anyone can!

Further to the above, I can now attach a list of places that may or may not have produced a colour postcard of the town or local landmark. Yes, most are extremely unlikely to have done so, however, I recently picked up a card of Slough, and also have Harrow, Ilford and Barking, so anything is possible!
Hoddy was kind enough to send me a postcard of Crewe. If any other members of the forum would be able to spare a few moments to look through the list and see if there is anything they can help me with that would be very much appreciated. Even if just to confirm whether a card is available would help. Many thanks.
Apologies for going a little off topic here as regards football Blush

Does it have to be an unused postcard, & is colour essentila?

Would you include a 'modern' postcard of an old picture, which would probably be in black & white?

Re: [LondonBuck] Postcards of Football Towns [In reply to] Can't Post or Reply Privately

I don't collect them or anything but my favourites are those 70s cards with four pictures of things like car parks in these bland commuter towns (like Camberley!)

I reckon you'll get one for the majority of the places you have listed depending on how fussy you are regarding age. A quick look on eBay has cards for Esher, Brixton, Hounslow, Walton on Thames, Chertsey, Sutton, Hartley Wintney, Ascot and Knaphill although some are very old and expensive. I'm sure I've seen some for Frimley Green in the past - there were a few made up during WW2 when a load of German POWs were marched from Frimley Station to a camp on Frith Hill. I've seen at least three different pictures on the cards but whether they count as Frimley, Frimley Green or Deepcut I don't know. There must be a postcard with Lakeside on it doing the rounds somewhere.
Even Ash has had a card or two made in the past, at least one of them was listed as Ash Vale. I'm not sure where the official border is between the two.
