Japanese Phone Cards

Ted lived in Japan in the late 1980’s, early 1990’s before Skype and Face Time and other internet telephone systems.  Back then, to call his family in the United States, he had to buy phone cards to use in the international pay phones.  He saved a small box of about 60 of these cards, with different Japanese pictures and scenes.

To preserve the cards, I put them in a small Creative Memories album, using clear corners so they can be removed.

 
Here are a few of the pages.

  3. Hello,
    My name is Vince and I live in France.
    I started collecting phonecards few years ago and I only look for Le Mans / Motorsports phone cards.
    In order to complete my collection, I've created a web site :
    https://www.enduranceraces-collection.com/
    But I'm still completing it :)
    Have a look on the part "Phone Cards"
    Is someone can give me address in Japan to buy / sell / trade cards because I'll be there for 3 weeks (Tokyo / Kyoto / Osaka) during May 2017.
    On the other hand, if you have some to sell, do not hesiteta to contact me via my web site.
    Thanks a lot and have a nice day.
    Vince
