Check out these vintage mechanical banks and the graphics on the old trading cards. The drawings are beautiful as well as the worn-down look of the old toys. Inspiring!!

P.S. I was just thinking how much more beautiful these banks are in their worn-down state than any of the vinyl designer toys available today. None of the new toys are as innovative as these old babies. Designer toys are just about as articulated as toys-for-tots. The graphics and printing are far superior on the old advertising cards, too.
