This is quite a Sasquatch Sunday. I’ve added several items to The World’s Largest Bigfoot Postcard Collection™ this week, including Pie Grande, the first postcard I have of Bigfoot named in Spanish. (Muchas gracias a Daniel por esta postal de Pie Grande desde Cancun, México.)

It’s funny, collecting Bigfoot cards started out as a lark. It was one of those things where I noticed I had a burgeoning selection of cards with that theme. Then that theme built and built and built. And now I have albums upon albums of Bigfoot postcards and ephemera. I’ve even made podcasts about Biggie, like this one with Jamo, and this one where I talk about my pocket-sized grandfather.

I’d say if you want to create a collection — or a theme of anything on postcards — start with a single card. And declare it so. Start looking. Noticing. Commenting on cards with your theme. And then one day you wake up and find yourself with what could be a world-class collection of postcards. As the saying goes: The best time to plant a tree is 20 years ago. The second-best time to plant a tree is today.

Have a Biggie day.

Pie Grande enjoys Cancun on this Chibi Gutierrez-designed card. (from Daniel)
That Amber Marimba stamp and hand cancellation make this one extra cool. Check out these kids playing marimba in Oaxaca, Mexico.
I think I need a carved Bigfoot in my office like they have in front of Pacific Crust Pizza Company. (from Rich)
Rich added this extra stamp on the back of this TouchNote card. Biggie and I both like pizza. Coincidence?
There’s Biggie playing peek-a-boo. Do you see him? (from The Lost Postcard Bandit)
The Lost Postcard Bandit cooked up this terrific #WhereIsBigfoot hashtag.
This is a postcard I bought from the Royal Canadian Mint that includes an actual coin encased in it.
Even Biggie takes selfies from above like his friends, the Kardashians.
The Missing Link
Bigfoot. Yeti. Sasquatch. They’re all family. (from Rachel)

      This could be like a game of tag. Or jinx. Who gets called “stinkaboo” last, loses.

    Haha, stinkaboo! Pie grande o el Yeti over here. I know what you mean! Exactly like that, one card and then another one. And before you know it, you have a collection!

      Pie Grande. I like that literal name. And isn’t that stinkaboo a funny one? I’ve never heard of it before, but I know a lot of descritions of Biggie say it smells really strongly. And yes, one card leads to another leads to a collection. Strange as it may be.

        Ja! Pie Grande and Big Foot are the same thing. I do not want to say he stinks but with that amount of hair and living in the mountains… hahahaahaha

    Wonderful post and podcast! My Bigfoot name would be Tree-ask (which spellcheck changed to ‘Teresa’ when I said it so I am sure it is correct). You should have a display of your Bigfoot postcards in the museum at Lacey Washington. They had a Bigfoot exhibit in 2019 that was a hit so I’m sure they would like your exhibit. You could become legendary in that community.

      Dang spellcheck! I meant to say “Tree-sak” =D

    2. Teresa Edmunds says:

      Dang it! I meant to say “Tree-sak” =D Then spell-check changed it again!
