Pete Davies - Why Not Try Moderns?


1990s
Why Not Try Moderns?
Pete Davies
63?

Pete Davies produced may postcards during the 1990s under the 'Why Not Try Moderns?' banner. Quite a few were football subjects but he covered all sorts of themes, from collectibles to politicians. I've no idea if they were all numbered sequentially or whether alike series had their own numbering sequence. Wouldn't it be great if someone had an original pricelist for these postcards? Here are the cards I know of, including non-football postcards?

  1. I have stocks (some only a few) of all the cards I published if interested at 10p- 50p a card plus postage to dealers only. Will also sell to collectors- ask for prices. I do not deal anymore for personal reasons but if you are interested I have large lots of modern postcards, all mint for sale. Good to know collectors are still interested in this series. I can fill in the gaps if you like.
