Mark Hopkins Top O the Mark San Francisco Atop Nob Hill Matchbook Sticker (MB84)

This place was built after the mansion that occupied the highest point in the city of San Francisco was destroyed in the 1906 quake.  Once it was complete this super rich dude rented out the entire top floor of the building as his own private residence.  Once that guy was gone they spend 110,000USD in 1933 to convert it into a bar.  The the 1940’s the Top O the Mark was the place where Marjorie Trumbull interviewed celebrities for KSFO.  One of the very coolest things about this bar is its “squadron” bottles.  You’d have a special bottle of liquor that was the personal and exclusive property of your squadron during the Korean War.  If you took a drink from the Squad bottle, it was free, and you signed your name on the label and put the date  –  until the last drink in the bottle, in which case you had to purchase the next bottle for your squadron.  There were 32 Squadron Bottles by the end of that miserable war.  I really would LOVE to see a label from a Squadron Bottle.

My father drank his Chivas and I had a martini at this penthouse car – Top of the Mark. We arrived there after the scariest fucking cab ride of my life – the driver actually fishtailed into the port cache when we pulled up after careening down the wrong side of the road in a tunnel.  San Francisco is a wondrous city. This is a fine old place saturated with elegance.

The image you see is exactly what we use to produce your bespoke sticker. All stickers are custom made. (We include 1 free GypsyFaith sticker per order.)

All GypsyFaith die-cut vinyl stickers are printed on glossy, premium, extra thick vinyl. We then seal the image in clear laminate so that it will be particularly resistant to fading or tearing. We will only sell the absolute top end of any particular product on our site. Our intention, as we developed this product, was to make it as durable and valuable as our magnet products.

Images used to make our stickers are scanned at 9600dpi resolution, reduced to 960dpi for production.

SIZE: This sticker is exactly 1.835 x 2.362 inches OR 4.66 x 5.999 cm (It is about the size of the original matchcover.)

It ships in a photo-type mailer to prevent bending.

*We require a minimum purchase of $10 for sticker orders.

We ship First Class US Mail for our customers domestic and international; for domestic orders the ship time is approximately 7 days.

We do not expedite shipping. Cost for shipping, as well as tax, is calculated at checkout.
