Detailed Product Description
HIGH QUALITY CARDS WITH IMAGES FROM THE 1963 AMERICAN EVEREST EXPEDITION.

Some of the most beautiful cards with images of Mount Everest that have become iconic among American climbers.

This image on this card was taken by Barry Bishop. It shows Willi Unsoeld and Tom Hornbein during their ascent of the West Ridge of Mount Everest in May 1963. The image is taken along the lower West Ridge, approaching the North Col of Everest, between Camps 3 and 4. The North Face of Mount Everest and upper West Ridge are shown very clearly. Willi and Tom summited on May 22. They met up with Bishop and Jerstad that evening, who had climbed Everest from the South East Ridge, the original route of Hillary and Tenzing in 1953, and Whittaker and Gombu a few days earlier. .

Jim Whittaker and Nawang Gombu were the 10th and 11th persons to summit Everest.

Barry Bishop and Lute Jerstad were the 12th and 13th person to summit Everest.

Willi Unsoeld and Tom Hornbein were the 14th and 15th persons to summit Everest.

In 1995 the Pondaray Card and Poster Company published a series of mountain related greeting cards. As we use a lot of greeting cards internally, included with all orders that are being given as gifts, we bought out their entire remaining stock at some time in the late 1990s.
 
We have a few hundred of this card left as of April 2021.  
 
The cards are 5'' wide by 7'' high, and fold open for writing inside. They come complete with the original mailing envelopes, an are all in perfectly new condition.
 
Cards are sold in groups of ten cards. Postage is the same as for one book.
