Eastercon Badges: 1962 - 2012
Some Eastercons issued nicely printed membership cards instead of a receipt for payments made before the con, but this seems to have died out in the late 1960s. I have membership cards for Bullcon in 1963 from Ken Slater, mine from Yarcon in 1966, and GoH Ken Bulmer's from Thirdmancon in 1968, shown below.
