Buzz Aldrin

Back to Home | Previous Page
Aldrin’s flown lunar ‘comfort’ glove straight from Tranquility Base

Right-handed glove liner, worn by Buzz Aldrin on the lunar surface during the Apollo 11 mission. Glove measures 9? long, with stamped information near the wrist reading: “A7L-103056-DX07 / L / N o35 / Size Slng / 74897 / ALDRIN.” Accompanied by a 1994 letter of authenticity from Aldrin which states: “This letter is to certify that the spacesuit glove liner sold in the Superior Galleries January 1993 Space memorabilia auction…was worn on the Moon at Tranquility Base.” In fine condition, with expected small pulls and wear.

These thin nylon ‘comfort’ gloves were issued to the astronauts to wear under their pressure gloves to prevent rubbing and chaffing while working in the lunar module. They also provided a bit of extra thermal protection, wicked away moisture, and made the donning of the gloves much easier. This liner is about as close as a collector can get to owning a piece of any Apollo 11 spacesuit. Provenance: Superior Auction, January, 1993.
