Some new postcards in my own collection. Grabbed them at a flea market last weekend (200 km away from my town — that’s where the closest flea market is!) I’m especially excited about the top one: Vladimir Zarubin, 1986. Run only 700,000 copies. Compare to his usual runs: five, six million. So it’s considered rare, and I’ve never run across one until now. Very happy indeed!

1) V. Zarubin 1986
2) N. Kruglov 1967
3) I. Filippov 1987
4) L. Manilova 1976
5) Yu. Artsimenev, Yu. Kosorukov 1974
