Exploring Perplexing & Peculiar Vintage Postcards

1Third in Popularity, First in Oddity

To some, postcard collecting may sound like a snoozer of a hobby, but it the third most popular collecting hobby, just behind stamp collecting and banknote/coin collecting.

Unlike the latter hobbies, organizing postcards is more an art than a science; postcards hold no official place in any government agency (save for stamped postcards) and therefore dating them, or even finding the country of origin can be nearly impossible. Instead, most collectors categorize postcards by subject or artist, if possible.

Here are some of the most unusual vintage postcards ever printed. None are pornographic, nor too insensitive, but I won’t guarantee they are all in “good taste.” Enjoy!
