I have this beautiful spiral bound publication and photo produced on the USS Yorktown for the Apollo 8 - USS Yorktown recovery. Somewhere I read that there is a Christmas card that exists, does any one have a photo of this Christmas card produced on the USS Yorktown?

I didn't know such a thing existed, but I too would love to see it if it does exist.

About the spiral-bound mini-cruisebook, a pen-pal of mine who was aboard Yorktown during the recovery photocopied his for me more than two decades ago. Even in photocopy form, it's one of my favorite things.

I found the source of the Christmas card I was wondering about at the Patriots Point Naval and Maritime Museum website. I must have seen this photo, not read about it. I've talked to the curator of collections and she is trying to find the card in their collections and get me a photograph of the front, back and inside of the card.

I thought cS members would enjoy these photos of the USS Yorktown 1968 Christmas card:

Thank you very much for posting these photos! Nice to have another "mystery" solved, and glad to finally read the content of the card. Many thanks for all your effort.

I agree, this is great stuff, and shows me once again what interesting, rare niches of collecting there are in this hobby of ours.
