Mexico 68 Olympics and Mexico 70 World Cup

México is celebrating today. Their national soccer teams have given fans something to enjoy (while it last) so I thought it would be nice to post these postcards.

My mom collected these cards at the time of the 1968 Olympics and the 1970 Soccer World Cup. And they were just recently brought to my attention. They are a mix of screenprinting and flocking. They feel very nice to the touch.

While the designer of all these cards is unknown, there are some graphics from Lance Wyman including that pink card with the Olympics icons and the beautiful México 68 logo.
