UNPA Souvenir Cards from stamp exhibitions - Blue cards Geneva

 

The United Nations Postal Administration issues a special souvenir card when UNPA participates in a stamp exhibition or show. The Geneva series started in 1973 and became known as 'blue cards'. For almost thirty years the cards were only available at the exhibition itself. Since some years the cards can be part of a standing order from UNPA.

 

A complete list of all cards issued is included in the Official Catalogue of the United Nations. The list on this page contains only the cards I have in my collection with the dates and catalogue numbers. Click on the different links to see the image of the card.
