Southern Florida Wetlands postal cards

Does anyone have a definitive story on the Southern Florida Wetlands postal cards that sold out so quickly in October? Any idea why they sold out so fast, was it a smaller than usual printing?



  • I didn't even know anything about the cards. Were they sold nationwide? I'll ask at my little post office if you want.

    From what I heard, they were only sold in some Southern states, but I may be way wrong on that. My local post offices and philatelic center never got any here (Philadelphia). They showed up in the newest USPS catalog, but by the time I ordered them, they were already sold out.
  • Well, I'm going to ask the 4 little p.o. s in my area. Just never know what they still have. Let you know.

  • The only thing that my p.o. has is one single sheet of the wetlands stamps. And they are in the hanging display case with 2 thumbtacks stuck through them.

  • The post mistress where I mail inquired about these and got the following response back from Austin.

    "Yes. It was a 70c international Postcard. We do not have any since it is the old rate."

    I don't think that's the postal cards I am thinking off. This is a 10-card set issued last October, and I think they're just normal 24c postal cards.
