Rare collection of 1967 covers, including Givens and three moonwalkers
Description  

Collection of four postal covers, each postmarked at Houston or Pensacola in March–April 1967, signed in felt tip or ballpoint by pairs of astronauts from NASA Astronaut Group 5 as they went to Ellyson Field for training, including: Edward Givens and Ken Mattingly; Charlie Duke and Jim Irwin; Edgar Mitchell and Al Worden; and Vance Brand and Fred Haise. All bear lengthy collector’s notations identifying the signers. In overall fine condition. Givens, a reluctant signer, was killed in an automobile accident on June 6, 1967, before being assigned to a prime or backup spaceflight crew, making his one of the toughest astronaut signatures to acquire. In his article ‘The Rarest of them All,’ noted collector Bob McLeod rates Givens’s signature as ‘perhaps the rarest of all NASA astronauts.’ Pre-certified Steve Zarelli.
