Wish You Were Here from Buster Brown


Here's a card from Tuck's Buster Brown Valentine Series 8. You'll note that they don't even bother to forge Outcault's signature on this one, so far off model it is. This particular one wasn't posted, but others in the series in my collection are postmarked 1909.


Are you sure they're even trying to pass it off as Buster? The boy has different style and colour hair, the suit is something Buster never wore, and a giant Chihuahua is a poor stand-in for Tige.
Yes, on the reverse it is clearly marked "Buster Brown Valentine Series 8".
This must be the alternate universe Buster.
