Item 424 - Karol J. Bobko Catalog 560 (Jul 2019)

Back To Previous Page
(we are no longer accepting bids on this item)
Minimum Bid: $300.00
Sold Price: $3,735.00 (includes buyer's premium)


Karol J. Bobko’s Shuttle-era mustard-color cotton flight suit, no size but likely medium/large, with an official ‘meatball’ NASA patch sewn on the right chest and a black Velcro name patch, "Karl Henize," with Master Navigator Astronaut Wings emblem attached to left chest. In fine, well-worn condition, with scattered stains, loose thread, a stitched fix to suit seat, and a broken zipper to left calf cargo pocket.

The first graduate of the US Air Force Academy to travel in space, Bobko, in August 1969, was chosen as one of the seven members of NASA Astronaut Group 7, the last group to be selected during the Apollo era. During his career, Bobko served as pilot during STS-6 and the maiden flight of the Challenger orbiter, and as commander of missions STS-51-D and STS-51-J, with the latter serving as the maiden flight of the Atlantis orbiter. Bobko logged a total of 386 hours in space and became the first person to fly on three different Space Shuttles before retiring in January 1989.
