I am not sure if this is the right group or not, but I hope someone
can help.

DOES ANYONE KNOW WHAT THIS CARD IS WORTH, IF WORTH ANYTHING? Even if
you just have an idea about what b'day cards are valued at, it would
be appreciated, as I know nothing about the subject.

I am currently in possession of an 'Enid Blyton' Noddy birthday card,
given in 1957. Details:
It has 'You are 3 today' with the 3 in gold metallic lettering and the
rest in red block print, with a picture of Noddy and Big Ears in
Noddy's car outside a very non-politically correct 'Golliwog club'
with two golliwogs coming out of the building. At the bottom of the
card it reads 'Happy birthday' in red print.

On the inside it has the following verse:

'Little Noddy's driving past,
But see, he stops to say
He's glad yoour birthday's here at last,
May good things come your way.'

There is an elaborate pop-out of golliwogs, and a 'with love from'
space.
As for the back, it reads 'Enid Blyton's Noddy' and at the botttom has
' a logo with 'Felicity Series' and '9BN'.

The card would have been purchased in Dunedin, New Zealand, in March
1957.
I do not have a scanner or I would scan a picture on to my web site.

DOES ANYONE KNOW WHAT THIS CARD IS WORTH, IF WORTH ANYTHING? Even if
you just have an idea about what b'day cards are valued at, it would
be appreciated, as I know nothing about the subject.

Thank you for your help in advance.
