Clipper Ship CardsBruce Roberts Clipper ship trade cards are cards that were issued by dispatch lines to advertise specific voyages of clipper ships from one port (usually New York or Boston) to another (usually San Francisco). They were distributed primarily during the late 1850s and early 1860s. During the pre-Gold Rush era, clipper ship sailings were advertised primarily by brief, unadorned announcements in newspapers. Once gold fever struck, posters and broadsides were the printed media most often used. Ironically, this heyday for clipper cards did not correspond with the peak times of the industry they promoted. Most clipper cards were printed in full color, on coated stock, and represent some of the finest early American color advertising artwork. While most clipper ship cards show "action" scenes, some offer pleasant, Pastoral images. The art of the clipper ship card was limited only by the artist's imagination and ability, and these qualities were rarely lacking.
