These are the cards I got (just so you know - there are in fact postcards in R2 as well):

Card 12 - BOB from the episode 2 dream / the european ending
Card 18 - Hawk from the last scene of episode 3
Card 22 - Cooping awake at night because of the icelanders
Card 28 - The deerhead on the wall
Card 31 - Leland: I'm back and ready
Card 35 - An owl
Card 38 - Audrey on the bed after being rescued from One Eyed Jack's
Card 45 - "You can call me Denise"
Card 47 - Cooper and Truman at the morgue, looking at the letter
Card 48 - "You can call me Dennis"
Card 49 - Johnny banging his head against the dollhouse
Card 57 - The dead man's finger pointing at the chess board

I'm pretty happy with mine. My favorites are 12, 31, 35, 45, 48 and 57

(I guess this kills the myth about there only being postcards in R1 and in Germany once and for all)

53 - Shelly
29 - Audrey as Prudence
45 - Denise
40 - the giant ("it is happening again")
31 - Leland - ("I'm baaaaack!")
57 - Windom Eearle makes a move
15 - the Gas Farm
18 - Hawk
25 - Laura as "the cousin"
47 - Laura, Coop and Harry
27 - the Tibet scene
48 - Coop and Dennis

-I can't believe I actually got two Duchovny cards. In fact, I can't believe there ARE two Duchovny cards. Post-fame revisionism, perhaps?
-The Leland card was the only one I really wanted. One of my fave scenes in the whole series. ("Sing mares eat oats and does eat oats aaaaaand liiiiiiiiiiittttttllle laaaambs eaaaaat iiiveeeeeeeeeeeey")
-Audrey, Shelly and Hawk are nice too. What's the deal about a gas farm card? That's just lame.


Damn Even - you got nearly all the best cards! :evil:

I did break down and get the Windom bird watcher and Annie cards off eBay, but i only paid $3- and $9- so what the hell, you only live once. Oh and i picked up the Lucy one for $3- also...

I did? Well, some of them are sweet, but I could very well live without the Gas Farm and Dennis and even Shelly. All in all, I think this whole postcard deal is pointless. I like having them, sure, but the quality is meh and I don't understand collectibles and the money involved. The sad fact is we could probably make cards that look as good ourselves, with a nice high-quality screengrab, good paper and a professional printer.

I don't mean to rain on the parade here. :)

Thanks dat500. I've requested this. Unfortunately, Amazon.com DO charge you - THEN refund you - so could still get a second custom's charge. We'll see... Also, no idea if the box they send me out will still have postcards with them...


Blimey, they must have changed their policy, as it usually says $0 on my account.

Yeah, unfortunately they have. But you're right - they used to do the 0.00 thing, which was MUCH better. Anyhow, still waiting for replacement ...

Well, my second Gold Box finally came and, thankfully, there were postcards, and thankfully again, no missing ones. Unfortunately, I did end up with 4 duplicates, but what you gonna do?

Here's what I have now altogether (2 Gold Box sets and 2 postcards bought on eBay). Smileys indicate ones I like (one smiley) or really like (two smileys)!


11: The Log Lady flicking lights at the town meeting.
12: BOB in the hospital basement. :)
14: Lucy at her desk reading the Tibet book.
15: Big Ed's Gas Farm at night.
16: Truman and Cooper in conference room with table full of donuts. :) :)
17: Sheriff Truman smiling (close-up). :)
18: Deputy Hawk close-up.
19: One of version's of Laura's prom picture on table in Palmer house. :) (Would rather have Laura wrapped in plastic or in Red Room but at least I have a Laura).
20: Dr. Jacoby close-up.
28: Deer head mounted on wall.
35: Owl on tree branch at night.
36: David Lynch as Gordon Cole. :) :)
38: Audrey lying on bed. :)
39: Neon sign for Bang Bang Bar reflected in a puddle. :)
40: The Giant.
41: The Roadhouse and lightning. :)
44: Albert Rosenfeld. :)
45: David Duchovny as Denise Bryson. :) :)
46: Ronnette Pulaski on bridge close-up. :)
49: Johnny Horne in Indian headgear and odllhouse.
53: Shelley Johnson.


I'm not sure if I'm going to buy any more postcards on eBay (I'm definitely not buying more Gold Box sets ' waste of money). Going to think about it. There's still a few I'd really like but I don't want to spend much more money. I've been spending WAY TOO much money during the last year on Twin Peaks and, while I'm sure I'll still be spending some money in the future on TP collectibles, the Gold Box postcards are not a high priority for me right now. Will pop my duplicates (cards 11, 15, 35, 36 & up on trading post, though. How's that working out for people btw?

Have bought 3 on ebay, 5, 50, 60. It's such a hassle though, might try for a few more and then leave it....

That stinks, joey m. You look forward to something, rather like Mark was it in the other Gold Box thread? It arrives, damaged, or like yours, missing parts. We need to get a move on on the whole transporter, teleporting, don't-screw-up-the-dimensional-shift-when-you-send-it process so this shit stops happening! Sorry your stuff was stolen. :(
