    Motown Corporate Christmas Greeting Cards

    Does anyone have any corporate Motown Christmas cards in their possession? I am trying to determine exactly how many were issued over the years.

    I have 2 in my possession. The first is from 1977 and it has a brick fireplace on the front with a 33-1/3 record with an M going down the chimney/fireplace and 8 flying records coming towards the fireplace. It is blue in color.

    The second is a gem. It is from 1981 and it has a head on shot of the Motown Museum with gold records in the snow and santa leaving on a sled. It is simply beautiful.

    Anyone have any others? Thanks.

    Here is the 1981 corporate Christmas card issued by Motown, just as woodward ably described. Isn't it cool? I'm glad Motown had not forgotten Detroit despite having been LA-based for some time by 1981.

    So did Motown issue such cards other than in 1977 and 1981?

    Just wondering if any new members of the forum have any insight into whether any others were issued. Annual reminder.

    I seem to remember a few different Motown corporate Christmas cards issued in the 1970s. I thought they had a new one every year.

    Who's the white guy just to the left of Yvonne Fair?

    I love the first card, what a great illustration! Would love a copy of that to put on my fridge this December

    Just wondering if any new Forum members have any knowledge into whether any other cards were issued. Annual reminder. I also obtained the 1975 that Johnny Raven alerted me that was for sale on eBay. It has a Christmas tree of LPs on the red cover and the inside has a collage of maybe 50 or 60 Motown artists. It was obtained from a friend of Tom DiPierro's who donated it to me free after I committed to buy it on eBay. They lived together in Greenwich Village and we reminisced about Tom and how important he was to Motown.

    Just a inquiry if anyone can supply information on cards other than those that were mentioned. I now have three in my collection. There must some others out there that some collectors have in their collection that they could share with the forum members. Thank you.

    Hopefully since we have new forum members since my previous posting, perhaps some of the new members can help with this effort. Thanks. Just wanted to reactivate it again.
