Collecting Comic Postcards

Comic postcard example

Vintage comic or humor postcards offer a glimpse into the tastes, lifestyles, and issues of the past.  Early comic postcards vary from sweet to risqué. 

Many of these postcards feature animals doing funny things.  The Bonzo the Dog cards, created by artist George Studdy are popular with collectors.  Political humor cards are also popular.
