Use of vintage advertisements...

Some time ago, I started reproducing vintage ads for use on note cards that I used in my personal correspondence. These are old advertisements from the 30's through the 50's (they relate to a specific hobby and depict companies that, for the most part, remain in business today, at least "brand name"-wise) and are reproduced from the actual original ads in my posession.
Many recipients of these cards have asked me to make and sell these cards, but I question the legality of this.
Would I be in violation of any law if I were to in fact make and sell these cards without first gaining permission to do so?
Thanks for any information.
