Anyone old enough to remember Oshmans Fur company in Mankato? Now that was a classic.

My dad used to sell there, over by Old Towne area, and they used to send postcards out telling you the top prices for coon, rats etc. Good memories- Ribnick Fur in Mpls used to buy too and when you drove in they shut the doors behind you, while they graded your furs.

Anyone still have any of those old postcards from Oshmans? I was collecting them for years as a youngster, and when I was in selling one time I mentioned my collection and they dug through a drawer and gave me a bunch more that I did not have. Kinda neat to look back on now. My oldest card is from 1958, mink up to $20 and coon $4.00. Cripes....that's 50 years ago!
