John Grossman is one of the leading collectors of, and dealers in ephemera. His collection which is currently on loan to the Winterthur Museum in Delaware began in 1974 with his first purchase of some postcards, labels, trade cards, and valentines from a shop in Port Costa, CA. From there his collection kept growing to over 250,000 pieces.

In 1985, John and his wife Carolyn founded The Gifted Line, a giftware and licensing company well known for quality products designed from images in his collection. They operated The Gifted Line until 1998.

Articles on John, his collection, and products designed by him or under his direction have appeared in Cigar Aficionado, Collector's Showcase, Gift & Stationery Business, Holiday Crafts, USA Today, Victoria, and a variety of other magazines and newspapers.

A member of The Ephemera Society of America since 1981, and currently a member of the Board, John was the recipient of the 1990 Maurice Rickards Award presented by the Society for his promotion of the public awareness of ephemera.

Discover the beauty of cigar box labels and bands from the 19th and 20th centuries, printed by George Schlegel Lithographers and collected by John Grossman; currently being housed at the Winterthur Museum in Delaware.
