MCC POSTCARD COLLECTION

The MCC Postcard Collection was acquired by the Club in 2015 and contains over 20,000 postcards and trading cards dating from the late 19th century up until the present day. The collection consists of a wide range of cards from international publishers to rarities published by local companies. The collection contains excellent examples of a wide range of themes including individual and team portraiture, major and minor cricket grounds, school cricket, humour, advertising, cartoons and illustrations. Many of the older cards contain cricket-related messages providing an insight into cricket at the time.
