Clipper Ship Card – Winfield Scott

A trade card for the clipper ship Winfield Scott was recently up for sale on eBay. This is a good example of a fancier card, multiple colors with the portrait of General Scott. Winfield Scott was one of America’s best military commanders, check out Wikipedia for more info on the General.

The ship was loading at Pier 10 (New York) and was bound for San Francisco. The beehive flag was the house flag of the Sutton & Co. shipping business.

The card ended up not selling (was listed BIN at $2,500 or best offer) on Jan 31, 2010.
