The ephemera Catalog

NEWS FLASH -- Carol and Bill Mobley are the new Promoters of the Denver Postcard & Paper Show held 3 times a year at the Jefferson County Fairgrounds.  See dates below.


Wm. Frost Mobley, born and raised in Wilbraham, Mass, I finished high school then joined the Air Force to be followed by many years as a car mechanic. But I think that there was Ephemera in my blood since 1974 when I left the Volvo auto repair business in Southern California to become a full time Antiquarian Dealer in Books, Prints and Maps. In 1979 I was introduced to the world of Ephemera through my mentor Sam Murray and I joined The Ephemera Society in London, UK. Since that time I’ve been responsible for founding The Ephemera Society of America in 1980, published four major illustrated catalogs on Ephemera, experienced the auction business in the early 80’s and been involved in organizing several Ephemera Fairs. I am a major collector of Chocolate Ephemera and was inducted into the Chocolate Hall of Fame in 1989, ha!ha! don’t laugh it’s true! Since then I have continued in business doing local shows, buying and selling when I can.


Carol Ann Mobley, born in western Nebraska and raised in Colorado, I became involved in ephemera in 1996 when Bill came into my life. Right away I started a collection of Snowshoeing and Tobogganing. Since starting in the paper Ephemera business I have helped Bill expand his inventory from Advertising Trade Cards & Letterheads to Postcards, Snapshots, Travel Brochures and other 20th century ephemera.


We are members of The Denver Postcard Club, Rocky Mountain Philatelic Library, Rocky Mountain Antiquarian Booksellers Association and The Ephemera Society.
