Vintage Radium-Tainted Tranfiguration Souvenir Card

"And Jesus was transfigured before them and his face did shine like the sun, and his raiment was white as the Light." - Matthew 17:2
My tireless pal Tim Caldwell sent me this vintage card. I'd already put it really close to my face to see if I could detect the glow, before taking it in the dark rest room with my UV lamp to photograph it. I didn't lick it, so I'm hoping the radium exposure doesn't give me some kind of face cancer. Click on the pictures to see them larger!

"Blue-Eyed Jew" ???

  2. "Blue-eyed Jew?" Yes. That's how you can tell he's Christian.


  4. Yes. I need at least three of them. Where can I buy them?
