This lovely vintage card has both the AAA and Quality Courts United logos. It was mailed from West Palm Beach in February 1957(?) using a purple three cent liberty stamp and the Pray for Peace cancellation. It was sent to Piano Showcase, Price is Right, Box 363, New York 46, N.Y. It has the following message written on it:

Eula N. Chapman
419 Anchorage Lane
North Palm Beach, Fla.
Price – $7,777.52

I did a little looking into these Price is Right cards, as this is not the first one I have come across. The Price is Right debuted in November 1956 on NBC. In 1963, it moved to ABC for a short stint, before it was off the air (1965 – 1972). In 1972, it was brought back on CBS. During the earlier years, there was a home viewer “showcase” where viewers would submit their bids via postcard. This card is from that era. I wonder if ABC held these postcards for all these years, and then released them all at once? Maybe they were sold at auction? My Doumar’s card is another Price is Right from 1957.

Anyhow, this is the second view card I have of the Motel Stewart . See the other here.
