Roy Andersen Collector Series Postcards

This page is dedicated to the "Collector Series" Postcards by artist Roy Andersen.  So far, I have identified a total of 57 cards in the series.  Within the full series I've defined 3 distinct collections (I've named them as follows): the United Airlines Collection (41 cards), the Boeing Collection (12 cards) and the Hawaiian Airlines Collection (4 cards).  Each collection is distinguishable by the color of the border lines that surround the aircraft image.  If you want to Buy or Sell Roy Andersen Postcards: Scroll down to "Buy & Sell" at the bottom of this page.  Here's what I know about these postcards.

Note: Do not copy, reprint or distribute any of the content herein without first receiving written permission from Freestone Inc. This information is copyrighted.

(Dom Quirk#1: On most of the cards, a hyphen follows the plane's name on the front and back.  It looks like the script is Andersen's.  30 of 41 in the United Collection have the hyphens, all 12 of the Boeing Collection have them and none of the 4 Hawaiian Collection have them.)

The cards bear copyright dates from 1973-1975 by Johns-Byrne Co., Chicago, Ill.  The copyright text and date shows on the back of all the cards. The 1974 copyrighted cards also show the copyright (symbol, text and date) and trade mark (TM adjacent to the text "Collector Series") on the card's front.  Many of the 1973 cards just have the copyright symbol ("c" in a circle) on the front, at the bottom right.  Many have no copyright symbol on the front and other have the copyright symbol and the trade mark (TM) symbol as well.  All of the Boeing Collection and Hawaiian Collection cards are copyrighted 1974 and show the TM symbol.  Only one card has a 1975 copyright date (#20 in United Collection).  Only one card was two copyright dates 1973 and 1974 (#21 in United Collection). Note: Many of the cards have multiple print versions where copyright markings vary!

(Dom Quirk#2: Copyright discrepancies. Card #7 and #22 of the United Collection have the copyright listed on the back as 1973, but have it on the front as 1974.  Card #20: 1975 on the back, 1974 on the front!)

The backs of the cards offer a brief description of the aircraft.  I've included that next to each photo below.  As mentioned, the copyright info is also on the back.  Like any postcard, there is an area for a message, a spot for the address and a place for the stamp.  At the bottom is the following text: "Special Offer   Prints of this art available 9"x12", ready to frame. Send $2.00 check or money order for each print to: Johns-Byrne Co., 161 W. Harrison, Chicago, Ill. 60605.  Please specify type of aircraft (the aircraft name is listed here). Complete list of other available prints will be sent to you with your order. Allow three weeks for delivery."

(Dom Quirk#3: Aircraft name errors.  In the United Collection, the aircraft name listed on the back of the card for ordering the 9"x12" print is wrong for Cards #7 and #20. Interesting-these are the same two cards that were in Quirk#2!)

(Dom Quirk#4: Card #20 Again! Along with United Collection #4,#5,#6,#22 and #29 show this: The price for the 9"x12" listed on the back is $3.00, up from the $2.00 shown on all the other cards.)

(Dom Quirk#5: Signature placement.  On all the cards, Roy Andersen's signature appears on the front, below the aircraft to the right.  For the United and Boeing Collections the signature is above the bottom border lines.  In the Hawaiian Collection, the signature is below the bottom border.  Perhaps this is because of the wider, colored border.)

United Airlines Collection

There are 40 postcards in the UA Collector Series.  I consider this collection to be a "sister" series to Nick Galloway's prints- and that's why I began collecting them.  You'll notice that in 31 of the 40 postcards Andersen painted the same aircraft that Galloway tackled in his series.  I have created a numbering system for the postcards that correlates to the order sequence of the Galloway prints.  When you see * following the card number below- jump back to the same numbered Galloway print and you'll see his rendition of the same aircraft.  Sometimes, there are discrepancies with the aircraft models, for example, Andersen's Boeing 80 is Galloway's 80A.

The United collection is marked by black-blue-red border lines.  Copyright dates are listed after the aircraft names below.

(Dom Quirk#6: Two DC-8-61s.  Notice that Cards #18 and 20 both show the same aircraft. But there are differences: The colors and United logos are different; one was issued in 1973, the other 1974 (or 1975, See Quirk#2 above); and the description on the back is different. Therefore, I've identified them as separate entries in the collection.)

(Dom Quirk#7: Three DC-4s. This is odd.  Cards #26,29 and 31 all show aircrafts that are labeled "Douglas DC-4-". #29 and #31 appear to be exactly the same on the front. Here are the differences: #29 has a single tail and different colors and logos than the other 2 cards; #29 is a tri-tail, it's description is different than #26 and the text "Tri-Tail" appears above the description on the back of the car; although #31 looks exactly like #29, its description is the same as #26's and the text "Tri-Tail" does not appear on the back of the card. So all three are separate entries in the collection.)



#1*  
Boeing Model 40B-4-     1974

When the Post Office held a contest in 1925 for a new mail carrier, Boeing entered the Model 40, a biplane with a fuselage of wood and steel tube. The four-passenger model, 40B-4, was built four years later and bought by United soon thereafter. Length: 33' 2 1/4". Wingspan: 44' 2 1/4". Maximum speed: 128 mph.



#2*  
Ryan M-1-     1973

Pacific Air Transport (PAT) was awarded the Los Angeles-Seattle airmail route January 26, 1926 after a test flight by pioneer airman Claude Ryan.  Based on the success of this trip, PAT ordered six M-1's equipped with Wright 200 hp engines.  The first private airline to fly at night, PAT later became part of the United Air Lines network.



#3*  
Curtiss “Carrier Pigeon”, Model 1-   1973  

Produced in 1925, the Curtiss Model 1 was designed for carrying up to 1,250 pounds of mail and freight. Its 12-cylinder, 40 hp Liberty engine provided a top speed of 121 mph.  Wingspan: 41' 11". Weight: 5,600 pound when loaded.



#4*  
Boeing Model 80-     1973

Comforts for the 12 passengers aboard the Model 80, introduced in 1928, included leather covered seats, reading lamps, forced air ventilation and hot and cold running water. Registered nurses became the first airline stewardesses on this aircraft.  Length: 56'6". Wingspan: 80'.



#5*  
Ford “Tri-Motor” 5-AT-D     1973

To increase passenger comfort aboard the 5-AT-D, heating and ventilating systems were improved and the wing was raised 8" for more headroom. Pratt and Whitney 420 hp "Wasp" engines powered the aircraft to a top speed of 150 mph. Length: 50'3". Wingspan: 77'10".





#6*  
Boeing Model 221 "Monomail"     1973

The single, cantilevered wing of the 221 replaced the drag-producing struts and wires of the biplane. A special "anti-drag" cowling housed the 575 hp Hornet B engine, which thrust the aircraft to a maximum speed of 158 mph. 
Length: 41' 2 1/2". Wingspan: 59' 1 1/2".



#7*  
Boeing Model 247-     1973

In 1932 United ordered from Boeing 60 twin-engined Model 247s. The plane carried 10 passengers, with a crew of two pilots and one stewardess. A later variant, the 247D, was refitted by Boeing in January, 1937, as the personal, armed vehicle of a Chinese warlord. Length: 51'4". Wingspan: 74'. Maximum speed: 182 mph.



#8*  
Douglas DC-3     1973

The Douglas DC-3, the most successful transport plane ever built, went into United service in 1937. In two years after airlines started using the DC-3, air traffic doubled. Its operating cost was only 3 percent higher than the DC-2, but it carried 50 percent more passengers (21). Length: 65 1/2'. Wingspan: 95'. Cruising speed: 180 mph.



#9  
Boeing Model 80A-     1973

In 1928 passenger and mail business was enough for Boeing to build the Model 80 expressly for passengers. This was followed shortly by the Model 80A, which had slightly smaller cargo space, but increased the passenger capacity from 12 to 18. Length of 80A: 56'6". Wingspan: 80'. Range: 460 miles.



#10*  
Lockheed “Lodestar” Model 18-     1974

Models 14 and 18 were scaled-up developments of the Model 10 Electra. Compared to the 14, the 18 had a longer fuselage to boost passenger capacity to 14. The Model 18 first flew in prototype on September 21, 1939, and was later widely adapted for transport use by the U.S. Army Air Forces and the U.S. Navy. Wingspan: 65'6". Cruising speed: 225 mph.



#11*   Convair Model 340-    
1973

Convair first developed the CV-340 in 1952. Before production ended Convair had sold 317 of these aircraft for civil and military use. Many of these in the United States were later re-equipped with 3,025 hp Rolls-Royce Dart engines.



#12(*41)  
Boeing Model 727     1973

Roughly 8 years after its first flight in 1963 the 727 became the world's largest selling jet airliner: 873 of them had been ordered by by April 30, 1971. Aft-mounted engines were perhaps the most distinguishing feature of the aircraft, which accommodated 131 passengers. Length: 133'2". Wingspan: 108'.



#13*  
Boeing Model 377-“Stratocruiser” 1973

With a range of 4,000 miles, the Model 377 was a descendant of the B29. The 55 737s (Dom Note: typo, should be "377s") that were built formed the main trans-oceanic craft during the period 1947-1959. The upper deck alone could lounge 14 passengers or sleep 28. Length: 117'. Wingspan: 141'. Maximum speed: 315 mph.



#14  
Boeing Model 737-     1973

The 737, designed as a short-haul jet, has several versions, including a cargo model and a longer variant, the 737-200. Introduced in 1967, the 737 is certified for use on gravel and unpaved strips and can operate on 4,000' runways.  Length: 94' or 100'. Wingspan: 93'. Maximum speed: 586 mph.



#15*  
Curtiss “Falcon”     1973

National Air Transport made extensive use of the Curtiss "Falcon", powered by the Liberty 12 engine. A heater-muff around the exhaust pipe directed warm air into the cockpit.  The belly tank, one of three fuel reservoirs, came equipped with a dump valve in case of emergencies.  Length: 28'3". Wingspan: 38'. Maximum speed: 160 mph.



#16   
Lockheed “Vega” 5-C-     1974

The 5-C was the last, and perhaps the finest, of the all-wood Vega line. Wall coverings of padded pigskin gave a look of opulence to the interior. Usually fitted with a large engine cowling and tear-drop wheel pants, the 5-C carried an optional controllable pitch propeller. With this option, the 450 hp Pratt and Whitney "Wasp" engine boosted the plane to a maximum speed of 160 mph. Length: 27'6". Wingspan: 41'.



#17*   Stearman "Speedmail" M-2-    
1974

Varney Air Lines operated five M-2's, carrying 1,026-pound payloads and powered by 525 hp Wright "Cyclone" engines. The plane was developed in late 1928 and first flew January 15, 1929. Length: 30'2". Wingspan (upper): 46'0". Maximum speed: 147 mph.



#18  
McDonnell-Douglas DC-8-61(Blue) 1973

Three years after its introduction in 1958, the DC-8 became the first jet transport to break the sound barrier with a speed of 667 mph. The DC-8-61, a variant produced in 1967, had a longer fuselage to make possible accommodations for up to 259 passengers. Length: 187'5".



#19*  
Swallow-     1973

Varney Air Lines, a predecessor of United Air Lines, flew several Swallow biplanes on its Pasco-Boise-Elko air mail route. Receiving a government contract to deliver mail, Varney was the first private operator to start service. This was the beginning of commercial air transportation in the United States and took place April 6, 1926.



#20  
McDonnell-Douglas DC-8-61(Red)  1975

Three years after its introduction in 1958, the DC-8 became the first jet transport to break the sound barrier with a speed of 667 mph. By 1970 nearly 550 DC-8s, all powered by four 18,000 lb. thrust Pratt and Whitney JT3D engines, were in service. Length: 150'5".



#21  
Sikorsky Model S-51-     1973,1974

Between May, 1947 and November 29, 1948, United Airlines conducted exhaustive tests to determine the effectiveness of its single helicopter in carrying people and cargo over short distances in the Chicago area.   Operational costs proved prohibitive and the plans were dropped.  Length: 57'. Diameter of rotor: 48'.



#22*  
Boeing 95-     1973

Making its first flight in 1928, the Model 95 was designed for transporting mail and air express. In all, 25 were constructed. After service in the United States, several of the 95s went to Latin America as light bombers. Length: 31'11". Wingspan: 44'3". Maximum speed: 142 mph.



#23*  
Breese 5-Monoplane-     1974

Construction on the Breese 5 began in 1926.  Only one example is known to have flown- for Varney Air Lines, which in 1933 became part of Boeing Air Transport, a division of United Air Lines. The aircraft's original 200 hp Wright J4 engine was later supplanted by a 220 hp Wright J5 engine.



#24*  
Vickers’ Viscount 745-     1973

After W.W. II, the relatively new pure jets were considered impractical for the short haul. Instead, turbines were used to drive the propellers.  The Vickers-Amrstrongs Viscount (Dom Note: typo, should be "Armstrongs"), flown initially in 1948, was the first propeller-turbine transport, and became the most successful British transport ever built. Length: 81'10". Wingspan: 93' 8 1/2". Cruising speed: 324 mph.



#25*  
Travel Air BM-4000-     1974

The BM-4000, actually a B-4000 whose front cockpit was converted to a cargo hold, served with some airlines as a quick carrier for lighter, frequently-scheduled loads. Powered by a Wright J5 220 hp engine, the B-4000 was built in 1929 and enjoyed a production run of 20 examples. Its construction was of fabric over steel tubing.  Length: 23'4". Wingspan (upper): 33'0". Maximum speed: 128 mph.



#26*   Douglas DC-4-
(Mainliner)     1973

In 1935 Douglas began work on the DC-4, a trunk route airplane. But by the time the aircraft first flew in 1942, the U.S. was at war and took over the DC-4 for military use. Many of the 1,163 DC-4's built then, as well as 79 post-war models, finally flew commercially after the war.  Length: 93'11". Wingspan: 117'6". Cruising speed: 219 mph.



#27*  
Fairchild “Packet”-     1973

The Packet, which first flew in prototype in 1944, was commissioned for wartime Army use under the designation C-82A. Before production on this model ended in 1948, Fairchild had built 220 of the aircraft. The main cabin could hold a maximum of 10 short tons of cargo or 42 persons. Length: 77'1". Wingspan: 106'6". Maximum speed: 238 mph.



#28*  
Lockheed Constellation L-049-    1973

Flying about 100 mph faster than previous transports, the Constellation made its first test runs in prototype during January, 1943. However, the aircraft went to war the next year as the USAF C-69, and did not enter civilian service until 1946.  Length: 95'2". Wingspan: 123'. Cruising speed: 298 mph.



#29  
Douglas DC-4- (Tri-Tail)     1973

In 1935 Douglas began work of the DC-4, a trunk route airplane.  But by the time the aircraft first flew in 1942, the Air Force took over the DC-4 for wartime use as the C-54 Skymaster. The aircraft held from 44 to 86 persons in various configurations and was powered by 1,450 hp Pratt and Whitney R-2000 engines. Length: 93'11". Wingspan: 117'6". Cruising speed: 219 mph.



#30*  
Douglas DC-6-     1973

The speedy, pressurized, Lockheed Constellation pushed Douglas to build the DC-6, an enlarged, pressurized version of the DC-4. United first flew the planes in 1946. Its time eastbound on the transcontinental route was 10 hours. Length: 105'7". Wingspan: 117'6". Cruising speed: 315 mph.



#31  
Douglas DC-4-     1973

In 1935 Douglas began work on the DC-4, a trunk route airplane. But by the time the aircraft first flew in 1942, the U.S. was at war and took over the DC-4 for military use. Many of the 1,163 Dc-4's built then, as well as 79 post-war models, finally flew commercially after the war.  Length: 93'11". Wingspan: 117'6". Cruising speed: 219 mph.



#32*  
DeHavilland D.H.4-     1973

A World War I bomber, the de Havilland D.H.4 was converted in peacetime to carry passengers and mail. In the United States, the plane, equipped with a 400 hp Liberty engine, was part of a transcontinental air-and-train mail service. Time eastbound coast-to-coast was 78 1/2 hours.



#33*  
Douglas DC-7     1973

Powered by four 3,250 hp Wright Turbo Compound engines, the DC-7 attained a maximum speed of 410 mph and a cruising speed of 365 mph. It carried up to 95 passengers and made non-stop trips from New York to various cities in Europe. Length: 108'11". Wingspan: 117'6". Height: 28'7".



#34  
McDonnell-Douglas DC-10     1973

First flown on August 29, 1970, the DC-10 is powered by three 40,000 lb. thrust General Electric CF6 engines. It can comfortably accommodate over 300 passengers. Length: 182'. Wingspan: 161'4".



#35*  
Sud-Aviation “Caravelle” VI-R-     1973

This French aircraft was developed carefully- four years passed between its first flight and its certification by the French government in 1959. United bought 20 of them in 1960, but 200 modifications were necessary before they could be used in the United States. Avon 533 engines provided the thrust. Length: 105'. Wingspan: 112'. Height: 28'7". Cruising speed: 488 mph.



#36(*43)  
Boeing Model 747-     1973

Plans for the 747 called for an aircraft so large that a new, bigger plant had to be built before construction could begin. Inside, the cabin measured 185' long and 20' wide, with a passenger maximum of 490. Outside dimensions are even more impressive: length- 231'4"; wingspan- 195'8"; tail height- 63'5".



#37*  
Douglas DC-8-     1973

Three years after its introduction in 1958, the DC-8 became the first jet transport to break the sound barrier with a speed of 667 mph. By 1970 nearly 550 DC-8s, all powered by four 18,000 lb. thrust Pratt and Whitney JT3D engines, were in service. Length: 150'5".



#38  
Boeing Model 727-200-     1973

The basic 727, accommodating up to 131 passengers, was "stretched" 20' to complete the 727-200, with a capacity of 189. This aircraft was first available to airlines in 1967. By the end of 1970 the 727 had become the world's largest-selling jet airliner. Length: 153'2". Wingspan: 108'. Cruising speed: 600 mph.

#39*   Boeing Model 720-     1973

Several modifications in the 707 resulted in the 720, lighter in weight and intended for shorter flights. Its top speed- 9/10ths the speed of sound- was higher than that of the 707. United Airlines first used the aircraft in 1960. Length: 136'9". Wingspan: 130'10".

#40*  Douglas Super DC  1974                                                                                                                           The                 Douglas DC-3, the most successful transport plane ever built, went into United service in 1937. In two years after airlines started using the DC-3, airtraffic doubled. Its operating cost was only 3 percent higher than the DC-2, but it carried 50 percent more passengers (21). Length: 65 1/2'. Wingspan: 95'. Cruising speed: 180 mph.

#41*  Boeing Model 727 -Red        1975                                                               Roughly 8 years after its first flight in 1963 the 727 became the world's largest selling jet airliner: 873 of them had been ordered by April 30, 1971.

Boeing Collection

This collection is marked by green-orange border lines on the front of each card. Copyright dates are listed after the aircraft names below.

(Dom Quirk#8: On all 12 cards, the aircraft image "breaks" the borders.  32 of 40 in the United collection have this quirk, so do all 3 in the Hawaiian collection.)




#1   Boeing B+W-    
1974

Spruce lumber, steel wire and linen fabric went into the construction of the B&W, the first Boeing aircraft, introduced in 1916. The New Zealand government bought the two seaplane manufactured and used them for experimental airmail flights and pilot training. Length: 27'6". Wingspan: 52'. Maximum speed: 75 mph.


#2  
Boeing 40A-     1974

The 40A, designed in 1926, was Boeing's entry in a U.S. Post Office contest aimed at turning transcontinental airmail routes over to private operators. The Post Office approved Boeing's low bid and awarded the San Francisco-Chicago route to Boeing Air Transport, a company subsidiary. During the next year 24 40As were built for the airline. Length: 33'3". Wingspan: 44'2". Cruising speed: 650 mph (Dom Note: typo, Range was 650 miles, Max speed was 128 mph)



#3 
Boeing 80A-     1974

The 80A of 1928, a luxurious air transport for its time, was a sequel to the highly successful Model 40. Offering its 18 passengers hot and cold running water, leather upholstered seats and personal reading lamps, the Model 80A also carried two registered nurses as the first airline stewardesses. Length: 56'6". Wingspan: 80'. Cruising speed: 125 mph.



#4  
Boeing 247-     1974

The 247, the first all-metal, low-wing American transport, was also the first model to return to its company a large production contract. Of the 75 that were built, 70 were ordered by United Air Lines in 1932.  A major feature of the aircraft was the installation of de-icer units on the leading edge of the wings and tail. Length: 51'4". Wingspan: 74'. Maximum speed: 182 mph.



#5  
Boeing 307 Stratoliner-     1974

The pressurized cabin of the 307 Stratoliner provided comfort for its 33 passengers at altitudes  above most rough weather. Although the first Stratoliner flew in 1938, several of the 10 that were eventually built were still in service in the 1960s. Length: 74'4". Wingspan: 107'3". Cruising speed: 220 mph.



#6  
Boeing 314 Clipper-     1974

The first flight of the 314 Clipper, designed as a long-range, four-engine flying boat, came in June, 1938. Capable of carrying 74 passengers, the Clipper made its first transatlantic flight on June 28, 1939. In all, 12 Clippers were built. Length: 106'. Wingspan: 152'. Cruising speed: 184 mph.



#7  
Boeing 367-80 (Dash Eighty)-     1974

With the first flight of the 367-80 on July 15, 1954, the American jet transport age began. The plane reportedly proved its superiority over straight wing, piston-engine type aircraft. It was used extensively as a flying laboratory to test structural and aerodynamic advancements built into later Boeing aircraft. Length: 128'. Wingspan: 130'. Maximum speed: 600 mph.



#8  
Boeing 377 Stratocruiser-     1974

The stratocruiser, with a passenger maximum of 100, provided an extra-wide cabin and a lower-level lounge reached by a spiral stairway. Fitted with dressing room and a very complete galley, the Stratocruiser also contained 28 berth units when equipped as a sleeper.  Length: 110'4". Wingspan: 141'3". Cruising speed: 300 mph.



#9  
Boeing 707-320B Intercontinental-   1974

The 707 proved that jet transport could be reliable, efficient and comfortable. Carrying as many as 189 passengers, the 707-320B Intercontinental entered operation in 1962. This transport provides an important passenger and cargo link among the world's major airports. Length: 152'11". Wingspan: 145'9". Cruising speed: 600 mph.



#10 
Boeing 727-100-     1974

On September 22, 1972, the 727 set a record commercial sales mark of 1,000 airplanes. Since it introduction in 1964, the aircraft has been modified and lengthened in various models according to changing airline specifications. Production of the 727 promises to runs through the 1970s. Length: 133'2". Wingspan: 108'. Cruising speed: 600 mph.



#11 
Boeing 737-200-     1974

Since entering service in 1968, the 737 has extended jet travel to many smaller airlines that previously used piston and turboprop aircraft. Its adaptability to short dirt, gravel and grass runways is a key factor in this use. First entering service in February, 1968, the aircraft can carry 115 to 130 passengers. Length: 94'. Wingspan: 93'. Cruising speed: 575 mph.



#12  
Boeing 747-     1974

The 747 still stands as the largest individual program by one firm in history. Full-scale production began in July, 1966. The airplane began commercial service on January 21, 1970. The control cabin is positioned above the main passenger deck, which features two aisles. Length: 231'4". Wingspan: 195'8". Cruising speed: 625 mph.



Hawaiian Airlines Collection

There are only four cards in this group. But they are graphically more colorful and complex than the other collections.  Three features are quickly noticed: First: The border has a thick blue band that is flanked by thin red lines; Second: The title "Hawaiian Air", in a blue tone that complements the blue border, is "sunk" into the bottom border and enclosed by the inside red border line; Third: There is a landscape below each of the featured planes. This "lifts" the plane off the card and adds colorful drama.  The uniqueness of the Hawaiian experience obviously drives the design of these cards.  They are quite well done. If fact, after seeing these cards, the others can appear rather static.  



#1

In 1952 Hawaiian Airlines introduced pressurized and air-conditioned cabin comforts to inter-island travel on the new Convair 340 airliner. The luxurious interior boasted foam rubber seats, plenty of legroom and big picture windows for 44 passengers. A public address system, individual reading lights and hostess call buttons were innovations in passenger convenience.

The interior was modified to provide flexibility in seating arrangements ranging from a 66-seat long-range first class configuration to a 98-seat Military Air Transport Service, tourist charter or inter-island configuration. The seats were also readily movable so that the DC-6B could be used as an all-cargo aircraft.

reedNew Discovery!!!!!

Fokker F-VIII-b    1975

I recently purchased this card.  I've not seen anything like it before. It definitely doesn't fit into the three collections I've established above. 

Time for more research.......If you have a similarly styled card with the same wide blue border, let me know. I'd be interested in purchasing it.  Thanks.
