Imagine getting 100 vintage Halloween postcards for $1

Old Halloween postcards are some of the most collectible postcards out there, with their bright colors and oft-amazing illustrations: sometimes spooky, sometimes funny, sometimes sweet, sometimes totally bizarre. The best ones are highly sought by collectors and can sell for extremely high prices. So I thought it would be amusing to revisit how cheap they were they were brand new, more than a century ago. Picking up a few bundles of these would be an excellent use of a time machine.
