Description


Distinctive hand-drawn display depicting the Mercury and Gemini spacecraft and listing the names of each mission, 16.5 x 18.5, signed in felt tip and ballpoint next to the mission name by all members of the prime crew: Alan Shepard [MR-3]; Gus Grissom [MR-4]; John Glenn [MA-6]; Scott Carpenter [MA-7]; Wally Schirra [MA-8]; Gordon Cooper [MA-9]; Gus Grissom and John Young [Gemini 3]; Jim McDivitt and Ed White [Gemini 4]; Gordon Cooper and Charles Conrad [Gemini 5]; Wally Schirra and Tom Stafford [Gemini 6]; Frank Borman and Jim Lovell [Gemini 7]; Neil Armstrong and Dave Scott [Gemini 8]; Tom Stafford and Gene Cernan [Gemini 9]; John Young and Michael Collins [Gemini 10]; Charles Conrad and Richard Gordon [Gemini 11]; and Jim Lovell and Buzz Aldrin [Gemini 12]. Matted and framed to an overall size of 26 x 29. In fine condition, with some signatures naturally faded with age, though most remain quite bold. Though unclear exactly who this display was originally created for, its incredible, one-of-a-kind nature implies it was for someone of importance. A positively stunning display with an astounding group of names—every astronaut from every pre-Apollo manned mission—representing these two early NASA programs. Oversized. Pre-certified Zarelli Space Authentication.
