Notes & Transcripts

It took six decades, but Christmas cards mailed in 1953 finally reached their intended recipients. In 1953, a stack of 50 Christmas cards addressed to Vincent and Marina Maggiore mysteriously went missing. Sixty years later Rick Buser, a flea market vendor, spotted the cards at an auction. He thought it was strange that someone was selling mail, and was intrigued when he noticed that the cards were addressed to someone who lived in the same town and on the same street where he had grown up. Buser bought the stacks for $15 dollars and sent them to the local newspaper so they could be delivered to the family. The Maggiore’s two sons, Albert and Robert, were surprised when a reporter brought the letters to them. The brothers said they never expected to see letters from 60 years before, including one from one of Robert’s former girlfriends. The brothers were a little nostalgic at the discovery, but Buser, who found the cards said, “Hopefully, it will bring some sense of Christmas joy.”—Jim L. Wilson and Jim Sandell
