Post Cards
Bill Miller

Post cards are a great collectable. They're usually good quality images of various rowing scenes. They're plentiful and reasonably priced and they're easy to display and store. Because there are hundreds of cards and images, you could specialize in a sub-category such as college crews or boathouses or racing scenes or European clubs, etc. You could specialize in just Oxford and Cambridge images or just collect any images that appeal to you. Here are some examples:
