I’ve just recently discovered clipper ship cards and find them very interesting. Beautiful printing and the historical aspect are what attract me. The image below is a card for the John Tucker which was owned and operated by Sutton & Co. with Frank Hallett as the ship’s master. A recent example of this card sold on eBay for $1,250. Apparently most cards in decent condition sell around this price range.
This card is advertising the run from New York to San Francisco and is printed by Nesbit & Co.
