3.0 out of 5 stars An Odd Mixture 18 May 2008
With so many landmark covers to choose from there are some poor selections among this collection, which does nonetheless include about thirty by the great Jack Kirby. Many are clumsily cropped so that words or numbers are missing. An unusual and worthwhile collectible, let down by a lack of care. A book of full-size cover reproductions would be a welcome follow-up.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great fun and well worth buying 26 Oct 2007
A fantastic collection of comic covers as postcards arranged alphabetically from A for Avengers to X for X-Men. Supplied in a stylish and full colour colour box rather than those irritating perforated books that one normally gets.
Highly recommended.

3.0 out of 5 stars Art of Vintage Marvel Postcards 3 Feb 2014
Format:Cards|Verified Purchase
Lots of postcards in here and it does have some nice graphics.
Great if you have someone that collects these, nice as a gift.
The only downside is that some of the pictures are only half views or lopsided pictures. They are not full on or detailed.
Not quite as good as I thought they were going to be.

5.0 out of 5 stars Grandmother who loves these cards 22 July 2009
By RevLizz - Published on Amazon.com
I love how they are in a box tied with a ribbon. They are easy to store and have easy access to them and they won't be damaged when I mail them out to my grandsons. I live far from my grandchildren and I send them postcards a lot to let them know I always think about them and that I love them. I try to get postcards that would interest them, nothing boring. They don't care what I say on the back of the card, they care about what the picture is and that is my goal. I search high and wide for non-boring postcards and this set here has given me 100 mailings to my grandsons. I love them.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great addition to any Marvel Fan Boy's shelf 6 May 2009
By Bruce Brocka - Published on Amazon.com
This boxed set of 100 postcards (no repeats) are of Marvel Comics covers, primarily from the silver and bronze age. It's a varied selection of titles, including the major silver age first issue covers, but also various 70's and 80's, for example, the Avengers cards are issues: 1, 4, 57, 94, 129, 144, 170, 181, 213, and Giant Size 4.

I gave this a four instead of a five for two reasons - primarily because the edges are "clipped" so that the image fills the size of the card, but obviously is a different aspect ratio (I would have preferred a smaller image with a white border so I could frame them more easily), and they are a matte finish instead of that VF+ gloss. On the up side, the are packaged in a very nice, durable box with a ribbon to assist getting them out of the box. Despite this, this is still a must for any serious marvel collector.

5.0 out of 5 stars I want to keep them all! 22 May 2009
By Ally B. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Cards|Verified Purchase
I am no expert on postcards. I do not collect them on a serious level. Nor am I an expert on Marvel. I just love getting things in the mail and believe that postcards are a tradition that should be revived.
That being said, I loved this collection! 100 postcards, each a different comic book cover, packed in a really lovely box that I'll be sure to keep long after the cards have all been sent. The colors are crisp, the images bright and fun, and (a nice extra!) on the back of each card is a light sepia colored image that corresponds with the front of the card.
I agree with the previous reviewer that the cards would have looked a little better if the images were not trimmed to fit the card, but were instead made smaller with a white border. BUT, as someone who bought these to send to friends and not necessarily to display, it does not bother me too much. I look forward to sending these to everyone I know, and would CERTAINLY recommend them for anyone wanting to do the same.

5.0 out of 5 stars Think of our troops in Iraq and Afghanistan! 18 Jun 2009
By C. Bishop - Published on Amazon.com
I write a lot of soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan. These postcards are wonderful! I can use one as a humorous and colorful alternative to a letter. Or, I can enclose two or three with a letter. Then, the soldier can write his or her own message and mail them home to the family!
