Earl Christy Embossed Postcards Overview

Earl Christy 150 Embossed PostcardThis series featured generic female college football fans or cheerleaders. They can be distinguished from many other issues because they are embossed with the picture presenting a 3D image.

Each woman shown is featured in fancy apparel and with a pennant depicting a particular school. That was a common theme with other postcards – particularly those done by Earl Christy. These shouldn’t be lumped in with Christy’s College Series postcards, which had a horizontal layout and featured two people – a man and a woman.

At least different sets of these exist. One is the 150 Series, as indicated on the back. A second is the 133 Series, also indicated on the back. Finally, a blank set with no series number is known. All three have the same theme with a female on the front with a pennant.

Backs include a simple, traditional postcard layout with a divider line to separate the message from the recipient’s address. The sets were created in the early 1900s.
