Ramones fan club postcard (recto)

Rectangular paper postcard with a  reproduction of a black and white photograph of New York City-based punk band The Ramones on the recto.  On the verso is printed the following:

Dear Ramones Fan,

Here’s the scoop…there’s a new fan club and the only way we can insure its success is if YOU join! All it takes is $3.50 for a years [sic] membership (to cover printing and postage costs). In return you’ll receive an official membership card, buttons, pictures and a newsletter that’ll tell you everything you need to know…maybe more. We’ll also give you a line on exclusive Ramones goodies. Please include all questions for the boys and all your suggestions for the club. We want to know what you want. Also, if you have personal letters for the band, we’ll pass them along…So–

Gabba Gabba Hey!
Michael Trese
Ramones Fan Club

The postcard was postmarked February 1, 1978 in Burbank, California.
