Jokers of Real People

These jokers feature real people.  Mickey Mouse is not a real person. Nor is Batman.  President Bush is a real person and so is Elvis Presley.  Real actors, like Harrison Ford, are real even when they're playing a part such as Indiana Jones.  Got it?

Organizing the collection of jokers is a focus of this collector these days. The real people section has gotten huge so it now has subsections. Like sports, entertainers, historical figures, and politicians.    Even the entertainer section now has subsections like the Elvis Jokers section. I'll only put one Elvis Joker here since he has his own section.

Elvis Presley Joker

Here's some pages of politicians and political leaders.
 Several George Bushes, a Jimmie Carter, a Walter Mondale, Saddam Hussein, George McGovern, Valery Giscard d'Estaing, Georges Pompidou, and Charles de Gaulle.

There's a lot more like this.

 Sports Jokers - This is growing into a big section, Here's some of the old ones which need to be updated...

 Actor jokers.  Notice that there are Three Stooges jokers.

Royal and historical jokers.  Can I be honest?  I'm thinking of reorganizing this section since these jokers should perhaps be in the history section. And should the old history section be organized by era? By country? Perhaps by type of image as in painting vs etching vs statue?

Help me.  Who the heck is this caricature of?

  1. I have been building the sports joker section. I now have a page of football jokers, another of baseball, a third of golf, another of NASCAR, and then a few more pages of mixed jokers. There seem to be less jokers with soccer players or basketball players than I would have thought. hmmmm.


Thanks for your input and for reading and thinking about jokers.
