The team-signed card is large format 147mm tall x 210mm, blank on one side, signed by the team on the other side with Austrian stamp canceled with an Everest image and framed in red.

The members signed a card shown in the book on page 58 (different from the card included with this book) that was mailed from Nepal, but most of those almost always lack one or two team member signatures.
