Clown Jokers

I have a section in my collection with clown jokers. Can I be honest? I don't really like clown jokers. I think jokers should have jesters on them.  I think clowns are a mistake, a poor substitute.

With that said, I thought I would share a few of the more interesting clown jokers with you.

Below are all the pages as of today in the clown section of the joker collection.  I count 87 different jokers. There are four pages with nine jokers plus five on the next page.  The pages have a minor themes. For instance, the first one below is mostly clowns juggling, balancing, or generally performing.

Clowns on Jokers Performing & Juggling

This set of jokers has more of a bicycling theme and since they are clowns, it's more a cycling theme with most of them on unicycles. It might not surprise you to know that I have a unicycle in the garage but I cannot balance on it. However, I am a good juggler.  (see me juggling).


This last shot is a jester, a spooky jester face. I included him so you can see that a jester wears a jester hat. Jokers have pointed or roundish clown hats. The distinction is usually pretty clear.

This article was updated Sept 21, 2017. As part of that, I updated my clown joker count from 45 to 87. I've been working hard this summer to grow and improve my collection. Astute observers will notice that I also improved my photography although I still feel that I have a lot of need to improve.

  1. While collecting post cards is different than jokers, it is somehow the same. So here's a call out: http://www.sun-sentinel.com/news/fl-vintage-postcards-20161220-story.html
