Looking For Unused Delta Destination Tags

I've been a collector of unused destination tags for many years and the one thing I haven't been able to find are unused destination tags from Delta Air Lines from the early 1990's. The tags measure 1 1/4" wide and 4" long with the claim stub still attached they are 5" long.

I'm trying to collect one tag from every destination Delta served to frame. Does anyone out there have some of these tags? Maybe like any true airline memorabilia collector you pulled them from the trash when Delta phased them out? If anyone has any let me know and I'd be happy to buy them.

I too have been collecting the unused destination tags. What airlines and how many unique cities do you have for each airline?

My collection is:
PanAm from 1970 = 52 unique tags.
Braniff from 1982 = 45 unique tags, duplicate sets
Eastern from 1979 = 52 unique tags, duplicate sets
People Express = about 60 unique tags

I have purchased a set of Delta Airlines tags, and may have some duplicates that I will not be using. I haven't framed them yet, so I am not sure which ones I have extras of yet.

All except People Express are the elastic tags with the perforated, unused stub. The People Express are the long bands with the sticky contact surface.

I know you are interested in Delta, but there are currently on Ebay a set of 51 Eastern tags for sale for $20.00. I purshased two sets last week of 52 each.

Here is a photo of my framed Braniff destination tags. I have a duplicate set of cities framed on the reverse side.

Plus many more loose tags of only a few from each airline. I've got hundreds of tags loose one a kinds or duplicates that I'll part with to trade or list on eBay if there is something you're interested in.

Thanks for letting me know about the Eastern tags on eBay but I already have every one of those in my collection.

If you have any duplicate Delta tags definitely put them on eBay. I'll do whatever it takes to win the bidding.

I sent you a message with my e-mail address. Let's discuss trading off-line.

Thanks but they stopped using these tags about 15 years ago so I don't think there are any left to give.

CitationJet - That Braniff set is impressive. Congrats. I remember you mentioning them in a thread a couple of years ago. Speaking of which, out of curiosity, do you still have the America West destination tags you mentioned in that thread? If so, I'm definitely still interested in trading.

CODCA09 - Sorry I can't help you with the early 90's Delta. I probably have a couple, but they'd be used. I can dig through some stuff if you want. If you have any from America West Airlines or Southwest Airlines you'd be interested in parting with, I would be more than happy to trade/buy/ebay/whatever. If you don't mind listing them, what destinations do you have in your Southwest set? I have:

Late 90's
ALB
BDL
BNA
BUF
CLE
CMH
DAL
DTW
FLL
ISP
JAX
LAS
LAX
MCO
MDW
MSY
OAK
PBI
PVD
SAT
STL
TPA
ABQ
AMA
IAH
MCI
OMA
PDX
RNO
SAN
SEA
SFO

Early 90's
AUS
BUR
DET
ONT

I just picked up a good portion of those Southwest tags on eBay, I'm sure you guys saw the listing.

Good to see that there's a current thread going about our segment of the hobby. I think we might be the only three out there with a love for destination tags!
