  • Rocky Mountain National Park, Hallett Peak

    This Flatiron Postcard #47 was mailed internationally in the 1980s and has a 33-cent stamp, but no postmark. A little bit of edge abrasion and creasing but the photo is nice and sort of makes you want to be there. Grade: 3

    Rocky Mountain National Park, Hallett Peak

  • Denver, state capitol

    This Plastichrome card P33882 (D30) would have been made sometime in the 1960s, and while it was never mailed, it has aged hugely on the reverse. The front is very nice, though, and you can compare those flowers over time. Grade: 4

    Code: 10106012

    Price: $3.00

    Denver, state capitol
  • Cheyenne Lodge

    This is an older Sanborn Souvenir card 516, along the Broadmoor – Cheyenne Mountain Highway, but mailed from Hong Kong to California in 1984. It therefore has a Hong Kong stamp and partly legible postmark, and a blue bilingual airmail sticker affixed. Grade: 3

    In 1987 the writer of this card said “see – we’re not ‘cow town’ any more” as if people needed convincing. The card was mailed with 14 and 22-cent stamps, has a full postmark, and looks good. Grade: 1

    Code: 10106019

    Price: $2.00

    Denver, skyline night view
  • Aspen, Mill Street Mall fountain

    Why are so many Colorado cards printed in other countries? This one, Switzerland, but maybe that is appropriate for Colorado anyway so we won’t say any more. Card was however mailed to Hong Kong in 1983 with one 40-cent stamp and full Denver postmark. Grade: 2

    Code: 10106020

    Price: $1.00

    Code: 10106022

    Price: $3.00

    Aspen, town and mountain at dawn
  • Vail, BBQ at Mid-Vail

    Not quite what you’re expecting here, the card was mailed in Malaysia probably in the 1980s as part of a contest, so it has a Malaysian stamp and partly legible postmark. Orange postal bar code on bottom reverse. Grade: 4

    Code: 10106023

    Price: $3.00

    Vail, BBQ at Mid-Vail
  • Aspen, fireworks

    At some point, the cards from Aspen do begin to look alike but this one is at least colourful. Mailed in 1997, with a 50-cent stamp and readable Aspen postmark, and USPS bar coding below, it is RC Bishop card 1079. Grade: 3

    Code: 10106024

    Proving there are indeed many ski slopes, this card was mailed in 2001 from Denver and has two stamps: one of 20 cents and the other an unvalued “First Class” flower pictorial. Grade: 2

    Price: $3.00

    Winter Park

  • Breckenridge, Quicksilver chairlift

    Cunningham Studio card 58161290 of the Quicksilver-High Speed Quad Chairlift at the Base of Peak Nine in Breckenridge. Card was mailed with two 29-cent stamps in 1993 from Denver, clearly seen on the postmark. But the card itself just seems a bit weathered. Grade: 3

    Price: $1.00

    Breckenridge, Quicksilver chairlift
  • Breckenridge, The Maggie

    Colourful but somewhat austere card of the 9603 ft. Base Area and village. Mailed in 1992 with completely legible Denver postmark and three stamps of 1, 10, and 29 cents, respectively. Grade: 2

    Code: 10106028

    Breckenridge, The Maggie
  • Colorado Springs, Gardens (sic) of the Gods, Balanced Rock

    The unmailed Plastichrome card P332293 has a caption with “Gardens” though we know the place as “Garden”.  More to the point, recent photos of the rock make it look far more precarious than this card does, and there’s plenty of speculation about when it will fall over.  Apparently a twin rock nearby already did — in 1936.  This card has a small reference number written along the upper reverse edge.  Grade: 3

    Code: 10106029

    Price: $2.00

    Colorado Springs, Gardens (sic) of the Gods, Balanced Rock

    Price: $1.00

    Maroon Bells and Lake in springtime
  • Garden of the Gods, Two Mushrooms

    There can be a big difference between toadstools and mushrooms, but when you compare this card with our next entry (and its caption), you might wonder.   Here we have Two Mushrooms on a very old card, unused, with some staining along right and left reverse edges.  Grade: 3

    Code: 10106031

    Price: $3.00

    Garden of the Gods, Two Mushrooms
  • Garden of Gods, Toad and Toadstools in Mushroom Park

    Now keeping in mind what we wrote in the entry just previous, what self-respecting mushroom wants a toadstool in his park?  More importantly, compare the pictures … The caption on the back of this card reverts to form and calls them mushrooms.  Unused.  Grade: 1

    Code: 10106032

    Price: $4.00

    Garden of Gods, Toad and Toadstools in Mushroom Park
  • Central City, Opera House

    Nice unused Dexter (and Sanborn Souvenir) card 6004-B, and #3035, of this historic structure. Rounded edges, and could easily be sold as new today though it was obtained in the 1960s. Grade: 1

    Code: 10106033

    Price: $2.00

    Central City, Opera House
  • Central City, Main and Eureka Streets

    This unused card is probably from the 1960s and we idly wonder how much the view has changed since then. After all, it’s supposed to be historic. The card is becoming historic! Great condition, Cooper Post Card Co. card 460 (and ODK-1347), nearly as-new. Grade: 1

    Code: 10106034

    Price: $3.00

    Central City, Main and Eureka Streets
  • Denver, multiple views and state capitol

    Yet another Sanborn Souvenir/Dexter Press card D-102 – 86155-D of “the Mile High City,” showing various scenes. This was mailed from Denver in 1984 to Malaysia, so used a 20-cent and a 10-cent stamp. The reverse is beginning to age. The front is like new. Grade: 2

    Code: 10106035

    Price: $1.00

    Denver, multiple views and state capitol
  • Denver, night view

    Night falls on dynamic downtown Denver, Hub of the Rocky Mountains West. That’s what the card says. Unused Plastichrome/G.R. Dickson card P72073 D-17, probably 1960s. Grade: 1

    Code: 10106037

    Price: $2.00

    Denver, night view

    Price: $4.00

    Alamosa, Train wreck of Narrow Gauge 497
  • Carbondale, Mount Sopris

    Written in the early 1980s, stamped (two 13-cent Crazy Horse stamps), and mailed but not postmarked. The postal service did however leave a pink number on the reverse. You could recover 26% of the cost of the card by steaming off the stamps … not that we would suggest doing that. Grade: 4

    Code: 10106042

    Price: $1.00

    Carbondale, Mount Sopris
  • Rocky Mountain National Park, Long’s Peak

    Actual caption: Long’s Peak and Lake Mills, Rocky Mountain National Park. Typical view, which we see from our perspective as “no smog.” Sanborn Souvenir card R-180 – 14828-D was mailed from Denver (full postmark) to Hong Kong in 1983 with two 20-cent stamps. The card has serrated edges and begins to show age. Grade: 2

    Code: 10106043

    Price: $1.50
