OK, I did us ALL a huge favor--- that is a RAOK--- and listed a ton of "suspicious" items under  the "Questions about PBS" forum last night--- boy are my hormones keeping me up at night!

Jeanne, those decks of cards are postable if they have an ISBN.  Go to Amazon and type in the title.  They have legitimate ISBNs.  Example: http://www.amazon.com/52-Ways-Nurture-Your-Creativity/dp/0811823881/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1316621256&sr=8-1

I was under the impression that decks of cards with their accompanying book material were postable?

Only items that can be sent Media Mail are allowed to be posted here.  Cards don't qualify.

Nope, pbs powers that be say having an ISBN DOES Not make it postable-- there was just a vacuum accessory posted because it has an ISBN for some reason!  Only books are postable or audio books, not calendars, cards, activity/coloring books, comic books, maps, magazines, or teaching aids, even though all MAY have an ISBN.

NONE of the items I reported as suspicious have any accompanying book material---just a deck of cards in a box.
