W8JYZ has this fantastic site with thousands of cards. There are photos of old cards as well as a master file index. Scroll down and if you find the card you want, he will send it to you.   http://oldqslcards.com/

I have an interesting story about my 75A-1 and a QSL card from W8JYZ.

So I have a 75A-1 I picked up several years ago. When I pulled it out of the case I found some notes on the bottom from various owners as to what has been replaced. I googled some of the calls and didn't find much until I got to one of the calls written on the chasses from Haiti, HH3DL. I googled it and came up with an image of HH3DL's QSL on W8JYZ's site. I looked at it and noticed that it mentioned the receiver being a 75A-1! I have THE 75A-1 referred to on that card! I contacted W8JYZ and asked if perhaps he could send a scan of the card and he did something better.. he sent the card! The card here sits in the shack with the radio and a story to tell. It's kind of neat to place the card with the radio that was used to make that contact several decades earlier.
