30+ Old Calling Cards

These were from my mom's cousin's estate. They're old, and I don't want them, and I don't want to toss them, and I don't want to hassle selling them on ebay.

Do you want them?

Let me know. I'll mail them to you.

I have a couple of these I've been holding on to and I will never use them. Do people still use these calling cards?

^I had no clue people still used these! I have a cell phone but don't use it much. I don't know how to work half the features that are on the silly phone either!

Folks, they're NOT phone cards. They're calling cards. Back in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, when people visited you, they would leave a small card when they came to see you. When they called on you.

The cards you gave me are beautiful...FYI..

We did some magic through ancestry.com and found names dating back to the late 1800's - early 1900's...quite a collection; here's another sample from EBAY.
