Description


Exceptionally rare and immensely desirable color 10 x 8 official NASA lithograph of the Apollo 11 prime crew in their white space suits, boldly signed in blue felt tip by Neil Armstrong, Michael Collins, and Buzz Aldrin. Includes the original TLS by Armstrong transmitting the signed photo, one page, 8 x 10.5, NASA letterhead, stamp-dated September 18, 1969. In full: “Thank you very much for your kind letter of congratulations. I regret that we were not able to take any of your mementos on our recent flight, but requests similar to yours became so numerous that we were unable to honor any of them. I have enclosed an autographed crew picture which you may enjoy. Please accept the best wishes of the entire Apollo XI crew.” In overall very good to fine condition, with a crease to the litho above Armstrong’s head, some mounting remnants to reverse lower edge of the litho, and scattered soiling to the letter. An absolutely terrific uninscribed example of the full crew ‘white space suit’ lithograph, featuring unusually bold signatures, combined with the letter from Armstrong himself, dated just a few months after the crew arrived back from the moon, this is an extraordinary pairing of Apollo 11 items. Pre-certified Steve Zarelli and RR Auction COA.
