Jason: A New Postcard

I guarantee you this postcard will be featured in a future volume and I guarantee you creators will fight over it. Picked it up this weekend in Iowa. Sent from Nevada to Illinois in 1948 it sports the greatest front-side I’ve seen so far:



And the back reads:

“Thought of you when I saw this card. Reminds me of the little mule you couldn’t kill. Been quite hot today. We are not used to that being up north and at the coast for a month. Expect to be home soon for our vacation. [Signed by two currently illegible names].”

This card is perfect. Someone sees the front and thinks “cute”. Reads the back and is horrified by thoughts of mule killers. I’d do a whole volume based on peoples’ interpretations of this card. It wouldn’t sell very well, but it would be awesome.
