Minimum Bid: $200.00
Sold Price: $250.00 (includes buyer's premium)


Two items: a TLS signed "Walter M. Schirra, Jr.," one page, 8 x 10, Project Mercury letterhead, October 23, 1961, addressed to Mr. and Mrs. Ken Browne, in part: "I don't get out to the Mesa, Arizona area very often, nor to the Los Angeles area. Once in a while, we get a cross-country flight on a T-33 over a weekend to the West Coast, but then, our time is limited and we have very little time to do anything but refuel at air bases. I have enclosed the photograph you requested and hope this is satisfactory for your collection. Again, thank you for your letter and the sincere interest you have expressed in our Project Mercury"; and a vintage official glossy 8.5 x 10 black-numbered NASA photo of Schirra with an Atlas rocket model in the background, signed and inscribed in black ink, "Best wishes to the Brownes—Walter M. Schirra, Jr.," who adds a Mercury Seven symbol. In overall very good to fine condition, with scattered creasing to the photo.
