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.

Allegheny from early 1970's - 12 unique tags (many extra duplicates)
Mohawk from 1965 - 21 unique tags
National from 1978 - 16 unique tags

AirTran from 2003 - 7 unique tags (many extras)
Piedmont from 1989 - 40 unique tags (some extra duplicates)
PanAm from 1989 - 70 unique tags
Eastern from 1980s - 72 unique tags

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.

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:
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!
