Have a look on ebay, you'll see most of the comic postcards for the 1940's onwards are unsold.
Mable Lucie Attwell collectors will be looking for cards in good condition.

It always amuses me on ebay when sellers say ' in good condition considering it's age ' I've managed to to collect plenty of cards in almost perfect condition over 100 years old.

It's always difficult to comment on postcards when you can't actually see them (or better still, handle them)

As a rough guide such a job lot might carry an auction estimate of £20/£25 - but that's a very wild guess really as it depends on the precise condition of the cards, and whether there are many collectable artists / themes in there.
