Card #1 Missileland

Card #1 Missileland features a houseboat called the Indian River Queen. The flying saucer is powered by Florida swamp gas. The artist himself is on the porch beside the pelican, and he is painting the missile launch. A Christmas tree is inside. Santa is on the roof in his long underwear playing cards with the aliens, and his outfit is hanging on the clothesline. On the lower right there are leprechauns and an alligator in a Santa hat! Christmas card from the 1960s and 1970s by NASA space artist Don Mackey. Card purchased on eBay.

    I found a 10 by 12 lithograph? of this in my dads attic… it’s in good condition considering and it is dated and autographed… March 14,1981 Donald J. Mackey. Is it worth anything? Thanks

      Oh yes it does have value. Generally last November-December on eBay each individual Christmas card from boxed sets were selling between $25-50 (depending on who was bidding). I can easily imagine the price going up considering it is a signed lithograph. I know I would bid! 🙂
