    Default "The Great Mandolins" postcards

    I got these off of ebay, they're pretty cool. By Dix Bruce, they were apparently available through Mandolin World News in 1984. I'm going to group them in a frame and hang them in the room I'm converting to a music space. He has another set if anyone thinks they're as cool as I do, and he has room to move on price, just sayin.

    I like them too, Sue. The second set has sold. Guess I'll stick to historic pics of players.

    Very cool. I am a serious postcard geek and always look for them in gift shops, etc. when traveling. Who doesn't love getting mail?

    Nice to see that Washburn bowlback included among the 'greats'!

    I wish these had been on cereal boxes or the old school cafeteria milk cartons where I learned the Presidents.
