Market

The market for postcards has undoubtedly changed with the growing importance of the internet. Most postcards are now sold online, with eBay remaining one of the best selling platforms to purchase postcards, as well as specially dedicated postcard auctioneers.

Larger auction houses also bring postcards to sale from time to time. Christie’s sold a collection of 292 signed portrait postcards of early 20th-century celebrities in June 2012, which achieved £27,500.Usually what is written on the back of a postcard is as important as the image on the front. For example, a letter written on two postcards by John Lennon to the political activist Huey Newton circa 1972-3 realised £27,500 at Christie’s London June 2013.
