Have you looked at the postcards?

By Mr.Bordsenius at 2012-11-11

We have a very nice collection of postcards here on petanque.org, and all of them are about petanque of course. Currently we have more than 1750 postcards available for your enjoyment.

The postcards have been collectet over many many years , it started with about 50 cards in 2001. And thanks to Jac Verheul - the man behind the massive collection - we now have more that 1700 cards.

This means if you look at one every day, it will take you 3 years to finish! Or if you do them all in one go, 5 seconds per card, you will finish in only 2 hours 30 seconds. So get started now!

You may vote for the cards , and rate them on a scale from 1 to 10. We alredy have a few hundred thousand votes , but more are welcome.

So go to the postcards collection now and have a look!

For the more curious take a look at how the postcard collection looked in 1998 at the internet archive
