In the early 1950s my sister and I were mad for packs of trading cards
we usually bought at the dime store. Lots of kids in my school has
packs of them, usually carefully wrapped with a thick rubber band, and
we would trade away all through recess. The pictures on the cards
varied: dogs, horses, flowers, Victorian scenes, etc. While I do find old
baseball and cigarette cards, I've never found any of the cards we used
to play with. My sister is quite ill and has to spend a lot of time in bed.
I'd love to find some of these old cards for her. I'd wrap a rubber band
around them and present them to her that way! If anyone can direct
me to some, I'd really appreciate it!
