Simpsons postcards

us-1097163

Although I don't have a TV, I am a huge fan of the animated series "The Simpsons." It's a long story, but I find their brand of humor brilliant. So when I stumble across out-of-print Simpsons postcard books, I snatch them up. This postcard of a surfing Bart (doesn't that wave look Japanese?) was US-1097163 sent to the Netherlands.

US-881455

The next two postcards come from a much older set, circa 1990, when the Simpsons were still quite young as a TV series. It even includes characters who died, like Bleeding Gums Murphy. All those postcards are single-spot mug-shot character studies like this one. This sweet little Maggie card went out as US-881455 to Poland.

US-952533

And of course the great Homer! He went out as US-952533 to Russia. Favorite snack: pork rinds lite! Ewwww!

  2. I don't know if you are interested but, according to June Casagrande of the book "Grammar Snobs are Great Big Meanies," The Simpsons is "the most grammatically and linguistically superior show on television." That, and it's funny.

  5. deltiolog - yes, eBay is the prime source. I also found one used on Amazon, and got really lucky once and got a free one from Bookmooch.com.
