Here's another something that looks like, but is not, a souvenir card. Rod will appreciate these. [smile]

Back in 2002, dealer Lee Quast had Mike Bean print up some small cards to which he affixed postage stamps and circulated as scrip at the FUN show and other shows he attended. They aren't specifically souvenirs of any show in particular -- more of an advert for Lee -- so we didn't list them in the SCCS catalog. But they do share engraved vignettes with numerous other souvenir cards that Mike printed.

It's possible Lee might still have some of these in stock. I'll PM you his email.

Canada Post actually issued a series of products they called "Souvenir Cards," which are not considered true souvenir cards by the SCCS. These are actually mint sets of all the stamps issued in a specific year. The USPS calls these "Year Sets" but Canadians preferred their own title, even though they are not souvenirs of anything.

I'm not surprised that you got yours first, Mike, since these get mailed from Philadelphia. I'm looking forward to getting my copy, since I suggested the theme this year. [biggrin]
