Minimum Bid: $300.00
Sold Price: $4,646.25 (includes buyer's premium)


Very rare program for the Wright Brothers Memorial Banquet held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, California, on December 5, 1969, in honor of the historic three-man crew of the Apollo 11 mission. The program, with cover entitled “Kitty Hawk to Tranquility,” two pages, 9 x 12, is signed inside in blue ballpoint, “Neil Armstrong” and “Michael Collins, Apollo XI CMP,” and in black ballpoint, “Buzz Aldrin, Apollo 11, First on the Moon!” Included with the program is a glossy 8 x 10 photo of Armstrong surrounded by attendees at the event as he signs the included program. In fine condition.

Accompaniments include: an unsigned program from event; the original event invitation; two other glossy photos of Armstrong at the event, one which shows the program; a Los Angeles Area Chamber of Commerce press release for the event; a copy of the December 2, 1969 issue of the Southern California Business weekly paper, with lead image of Armstrong and headline, reading: “Aviation Industry’s Elite Gather for Wright Banquet”; and the first section of the December 2, 1969 issue of the Southern California Business, showing image of Armstrong next to headline: “Wright ‘Flyer’ Goes to Moon, Armstrong Reveals at Banquet.” A magnificent fully signed offering that ties together man's two greatest aeronautical achievements.
