  • Two Harbors, Three-Spot Locomotive

    One would not expect a card of this size (6″ x 9″) to make it safely through international airmail, but this one did, with only minor corner bending and abrasions. Mailed in 1990, with stamp and postmark intact, it’s Dexter Press 56039 apparently dated 1961. And they call it “Giant Post Card.” Grade: 2

  • Duluth-Superior Hi Bridge

    Honestly we do not know if we are looking towards Duluth (Minnesota) or Superior (Wisconsin) but the card tells us that this is a “Dramatic Nite View of the Hi Bridge Connecting” those two. Card was mailed in 1993 with two 29-cent tulip stamps and a full St. Paul postmark, and because the card was published in MN and not WI, we place it in MN. Grade: 2

    Code: 10124030

    Duluth-Superior Hi Bridge
  • Minneapolis, Lake Calhoun

    This card, mailed in 1983 with a 28-cent Blanche Stuart Scott airmail stamp and full but partly obscured postmark, makes Lake Calhoun look just a little bit sterile. Well. Maybe in 1983, it was. Grade: 2

    Price: $2.00

  • Lake Region, sunny day

    Honest, the caption on the back says “Enjoying a sunny day in Minnesota Lake Region.” Based on this, we would not want to see a cloudy day. Card mailed in 1984 from St. Paul with two 20-cent 1984 Olympics stamps. Grade: 1

    Official name: Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome Stadium. Interesting caption saying that this place was “inflated Oct. 2, 1981 and was open for the first Twins home game on April 3rd, 1982.” The card was mailed in 1983, with airmail sticker, one stamp–and just one postmark. A little postal corner scrunching. Grade: 2

  • Stillwater, Home of the Ponies

    Caption says “Stillwater, Minnesota is ‘The Home of the Ponies.’ Also known as ‘Big Red,’ the senior high school is a constant newsmaker …” Card was mailed in 1983, with one 28-cent stamp and partial Minneapolis postmark and airmail sticker. Serrated edges. Grade: 1

  • East Grand Forks, American Beet Sugar

    We know that American Beet Sugar opened this factory in 1926 but the name changed to American Crystal Sugar in 1934. So that helps date the card, which is unmailed but which has a travel agent’s rubber stamp on the reverse. This is Ira Gaulke News Agency card 118842-N. Grade: 4

    Price: $4.00

  • Hierarchy of fish
