Item 5048 - Buzz Aldrin’s Apollo 11 Flown PPK Catalog 455 (Jun 2015)

Back To Previous Page
(we are no longer accepting bids on this item)
Minimum Bid: $1,000.00
Sold Price: $50,000.00 (includes buyer's premium)


Buzz Aldrin’s flown Personal Preference Kit (PPK) Beta cloth bag carried on Apollo 11, 5.75 x 8.75, signed and flight-certified in black ballpoint, “This is my personal PPK from Apollo XI that flew into lunar orbit aboard spacecraft ‘Columbia’ in July 1969, Buzz Aldrin.” A patch on the front reads: “Kit, Pilot’s Preference, P/N SEB 12100018-202, S/N 1057.” Handwritten notations on the patch also read “Buzz” and “CM, A8.” General light wear and soiling from use, some skipping to ink due to the textured surface, and the flight certification a couple shades light, otherwise fine condition. Also includes a color glossy 8 x 10 photo of Aldrin, signed in the lower border in blue felt tip. Accompanied by a signed certificate of authenticity from Aldrin for the PPK and certificates of authenticity from Novaspace for Aldrin’s autographs. Personal Preference Kits, otherwise known as PPKs, allowed the Apollo astronauts to carry a limited number of personal items on each manned spacecraft flight. Flown items from Apollo 11 are of the utmost desirability and this is a particularly rare example, as a total of just three Command Module PPKs are listed on the Apollo 11 stowage lists. A distinctly remarkable item carried into lunar orbit on the first lunar landing mission. Pre-certified Zarelli Space Authentication.
