OK, I can't resist. Why is someone from Oz interested in a 1951 Calgary Stampede cover?

Calgary in 1951 was quite a small town and I'm sure this is incredibly scarce. BTW, I moved to Calgary in 1977 and lived there a few years.

Been watching this thread and wondering whether someone would find this specialty item on an Australian message board. Clue me in, please. :?:

It is a very scarce multi-colour Overseas Mailer Calgary Stampede event cover. There are quite a number of collectors of Overseas Mailer covers (myself included). Some are very scarce and in demand (especially if you are trying for a complete set).

Britjag, check nightwatchmans tag line (Author of related Overseas Mailer works). I assume it is an item missing from his collection.

I have a lot of Canadian Overseas Mailer FDCs, and Calgary Stampede Event covers, sadly not that one.

This is an international forum, and probably a good place to look for something like this.

Nightwatchman, hopefully it will turn up for you.

I have a decent 1951 cover in black, not color, and it's not "Overseas Mailers," just a handwritten address, July 14 cancel (my scanner bulb is burned out, no image available).

Is it of any use to you? If yes, I'll get a friend to take a photo with his smartphone, then email it to me on the spot so you can have a look, via forwarded email.

Hi,

I saw these two pages:

1951 Calgary Stampede Cover Note this one has the Overseas Mailers cachet. Perhaps the Canada FDC group can help you find another one? (There are also images of other Canadian Overseas Mailers FDCs.

The other is: Borden FDC, but not not an Overseas Mailer.

Perhaps useful?

Best wishes,
AndrewG

Thanks for the link, AndrewG.
The Canada FDC Group has not been able to help with the cover I require.

All 134 Canada Overseas Mailers FDCs are listed in the BNAPS handbook published in December 2014 titled
Overseas Mailers First Day Covers of Canada by Mark Lerner & John van der Ven.

Absolutely delighted to report that today 18 October 2020 I received an offer to sell me the above 1951 Calgary Stampede souvenir (event) envelope by Overseas Mailers of New York. The seller is in Edmonton Alberta, north of Calgary.

My first WTB for C$150 was listed here on 24 June 2015.
So, after 5 Years and 4 months (4,324 views) and a offer of C$200 this journey has ended.

I will post a photo of the cover when it arrives from Canada.
I think it will take a couple of months to arrive in the CoronaV Storm.

The reach of Stamp Boards around our planet continues to be astonishing :!:
