Space shocker: “I’ll be happy to sign something”

TLS signed “Neil,” one page, 8.5 x 11, personal letterhead, February 9, 1995. Armstrong writes to David Jameson. In full: “I’ll be happy to sign something for Mr. Burton. I do not sign philatelic material (stamps, first day covers, etc.) or trading cards. The Air Force has a special version of their wings for Air Force pilots who have flown above 50 miles altitude. As far as I know, the Navy, Army, or NASA have no such artifacts. All the best….” The opening sentence is undoubtedly of special interest to collectors, as Armstong has come to earn a reputation in the space collecting community for his almost pathological reluctance to sign. In fine, bright condition. COA Scott Cornish and R&R COA.
