Lot of 12 Vintage Halloween Invitations & Envelopes Unused Pumpkin Black Cat Owl

Bidding was hot and heavy on this lot. I can somewhat understand why - the invitation is well done, energetic and nicely colored. I think that $29.75 each was a bit much, especially considering that one of the twelve has a serious discoloration to the upper right front. This seller certainly scored some great small paper, selling with overall strong results - results consistent with the trend I've been noticing these past months. When bidding on a lot containing many duplicates, paying top dollar is something to be avoided. It'll be interesting to see if singles begin to appear for sale.
