Old Salesman Sample Crystal Gazing Gertie Comic Valentine
Crystal Ball   Fortune Teller   Comic   Cartoon   Valentine   Holiday   Paper   Ephemera   Comedy   Joke
The picture shows a view of this Old Salesman Sample Crystal Gazing Gertie Comic Valentine. The valentine is not dated but believed to be from the 1930s or 1940s. This valentine came from a salesman's sample booklet with the full (24) from this set. The booklet was taken apart to be sold separately. The cover of the booklet is shown but is NOT included with the valentine. Because of the images and wording these are also known as ''Rude Valentines''. There are many other different sets of these that were made and some were used as premiums from Cracker Jack, Checkers Popcorn Confection and others. Some types were sold in old five and dime stores. It is unknown how this one was available.

The set that this Valentine came from consisted of the following list of titles:

Rug Cutters
Crystal Gazing Gertie
Sugar Daddy
Beauty At Rest
Would Be Politician
5 And Dime Indian
Favorite Aunt
Clock Watcher
Lodge Brothers
Friendly Neighbors
Braggin' Sam
Club Leader
Golfer
Super Salesman
Henpecked Husband
Loving Couple
Noisy Neighbor
Tennis Champ
Horseback Rider
Ping Pong Polly
Card Player
Jack Of All Trades
Special Sale Sadie
Husband's Delight

This Valentine pictures a fortune teller gazing into a crystal ball with a woman waiting to know her fortune. It reads as follows:

CRYSTAL GAZING GERTIE

Why gaze in the crystal? It's easy to see it won't take a prophet to say what will be. One look at your face and your fortune's told fast. You haven't a future nor even a past.

MADE IN U.S.A.

The valentine measures 8'' x 11''. It is in near mint condition with a light wrinkle near the top left as pictured. There are three staple holes at the top as made from being in the salesman's sample booklet.
