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.
These are just beautiful. Do you like the artwork of Milton Caniff, especially Steve Canyon?
