This postcard shows two views of the burro races in Beatty Nevada. The race was an annual event from 1961 to 1972, so the age of this card would be within that timeframe.
Within the picture on the front, several burros are wearing advertisement banners. Two that I can read are 'Jem Pipe and Supply Co. Long Beach CA" and 'Harrington Insurance Agency Las Vegas Nevada'.
The description from the back of the card reads: "The Annual Burro Race at Beatty Nevada attracts many visitors who witness the ingenuity of man being pitted against the stubborn nature of wild burros rounded up for the race across the desert".
The card measures roughly 3.5 by 5.5 inches. It's very bright in color. As far as the maker of the card, the back says "Another Chris Card" and "Henry McGrew Printing, K.C. Mo.". Following that are the numbers 46432. The card has deckled edges which are irregular and uneven. The card has a divided back. Although not stated on the card, I believe this is a photochrome postcard.
I recently purchased a few dozen older postcards at an estate sale. The subjects of the cards are in and around The Las Vegas area. They are of 'old Vegas" and many are of the old casinos and hotels that have long ago been demolished. I do combine shipping on multiple purchases (see shipping notes below), so be sure to check out my other items.
I am not a postcard collector and don't know how to 'rate" postcards. Personally, I think the card is in great condition for being at least 50 years old. I can see that there are tiny bumps to the corners, but they are so small that I can't get a measurement. Also, the back has slight age coloring.
Buyer to pay $2.50 First Class Mail delivery charges. That cost will cover up to the purchase of 4 postcards.
NOTE about combined shipping: My website host is not set up to calculate multiple item shipping costs. At checkout, you will be charged full shipping price on each item purchased and I will refund the appropriate amount of overpayment. If you are uncomfortable with that, you can send me an email with your zip code and stating which items you'll be purchasing and I'll calculate the correct combined shipping charges and send you a custom invoice.
Due to claims that merchandise is not being received at various international countries (although Customs tracking verifies the delivery), I will no longer be able to process international orders unless payment is made with U.S. currency, including conversion fees. Orders will be processed after funds have cleared a U.S. bank. PAYPAL WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED FOR PAYMENT ON INTERNATIONAL PURCHASES. Seller reserves the right to void any international transactions where contact has not been made prior to purchasing.
All items in my listings come from either estate or garage sales. I do not know if they came from homes where smoking or pets were present. All items are sold in the same condition as when I received them.
