Looking to creep someone out this Valentine’s Day? This vaguely threatening vintage Valentine card portrays a lumpy potato-head man with six eyes and a long tongue, and declares, “I have my EYES on you VALENTINE.” He’s pointing to one of his eyes with his right hand, and he’s holding his disproportionately large head up with the other, lest it should loll heavily to the side. As if that weren’t enough, there’s a red tab that moves two of his eyes and his tongue back and forth, which adds a whole other layer of derangement to the scene. Still photos just do not do this justice.

The card measures about 5” tall and is signed “Mary Alice” in ink on the front. The back is blank. There are a couple of minor bends in the card (not quite creases), and a little wear to the edges. I think this probably dates to the 1940’s, but it could be earlier.

Combined Shipping: I’m happy to ship multiple purchases together to lower shipping costs, but I don’t pre-enter a combined amount as I prefer to figure it based on packed weight (it’s usually cheaper that way). If you’d like to know the cost to ship specific items together, just convo me. Combined shipping will always be less than shipping items separately.

International Shipping: Costs may be lower to your country. Feel free to convo me for exact rates.
