This week I received two aviation cards to add to the collection. Tony F. over on Net54 sent these beauties:
The Douglas Skyhawk jet fighter (above) is from a 1958 British series titled Jet Aircraft of the World by CARDMASTER.
The other is from the 1941 set Uncle Sam - Airmen featuring High Altitude Pilots. I truly admire the artwork on these cards as something that cannot be reproduced by photos. Although these cards are not in mint condition I can imagine there were in some youngsters' possession as far back as World War II. The creases only add to the character of these vintage issues.
