For years, my family and I have enjoyed looking at these historic and artistic valentines. These valentines serve to illustrate our collective American history. By putting them online at WorthPoint, we can share them digitally, rather than store them in a box.

The time-honored tradition of valentine exchange enters the digital age with nostalgic notes and classic images. Vintage valentines are appreciated for their detail and design and these historic prints are now available for electronic delivery via WorthPoint -premier website for the art, antiques, and collectibles community.
Members can send vintage valentines to friends and loved ones with the click of a mouse. Choose from romantic, ornate classics, or valentines that are whimsical and fun. Each vintage valentine provides a glimpse into a world that no longer exists, where sentiments were sweeter than sugar, and hearts went "kerplop." With retro valentines, rosy-cheeked kewpie dolls send sugary sweet declarations of love. There are also antique valentines with designs of embossed lace and curly-cues, which return the viewer to a simpler time.
Most of the valentines are from the card collection of Will Seippel, CEO and founder of WorthPoint. "For years, my family and I have enjoyed looking at these historic and artistic valentines.
