Postcard Heaven

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports postcard collecting ranks No. 3 in popularity in the U.S., behind coin and stamp collecting.

"It's wall-to-wall collectibles - mainly postcards. Thousands and thousands of postcards - of buildings, advertising, unidentified people, motels, street scenes, lakes, mountains- going back to the late 1800s."

Danielsen, 63, who has been collecting cards since a 1978, is shown above going through some of his inventory.
