Warner Gothard Postcard Index

Special thanks to Brian Lund, Richard Higgs, John Alsop and Mike Clark for their assistance in compiling this listing. We welcome any new information and scans of Gothard event and disaster postcards not listed in this section so we can build a more complete picture. The scarcity rating and valuation information below is only a guide and open to interpretation. The standard postcards have remained quite static because they are so accessible. The extremely rare examples can bring very high prices, especially when offered for sale at auction where prices can naturally become inflated when collectors are bidding against each other.
