Hi There i have two cards in mint, one with wallet & one without . The Wallet is green with Cead Mile Failte ...... Telecom Eireann Welcomes the U.S.S. John F. Kennedy and Crew to Ireland . it also has a booklet telling how to call home from Ireland :roll:

Hi Robbie,

you certainly don't see this card come up for sale mint that often, particularly including the wallet. The wallet and callcard were given to crew of the JFK ship as a gift from Telecom Eireann. I'd value the mint card alone at €15-24 and mint card including the wallet at €30-45 :-)

hope this helps

Nick

how much is one of these cards worth in origional wallet, never opened

Hi Snoopy,

With the JFK Leather wallet? I would say €35-40 should be possible, maybe a bit less. Still though it's a rareish card to find mint, and the wallet was only given out to those on board the JFK Ship during it's visit to Ireland at the time,

Hope this helps,

Nick
