NASA astronaut (1931–1982) who, as a last-minute replacement for Ken Mattingly (who had been exposed to German measles) was one of three crew members on the near-disastrous Apollo 13 mission. After becoming embroiled in the controversy surrounding souvenirs carried aboard the Apollo 15 mission, Swigert embarked on a political career, running unsuccessfully for a Senate seat in 1978. He finally won a seat in the House of Representatives in 1982 but died before taking office. Color 8 x 10 NASA photo of Swigert in a suit and tie posing with a model of a lunar lander, signed and inscribed in black felt tip “To Paul Kahn, Best wishes, Jack Swigert, Apollo 13.” In fine condition, with a few small faint bends, and trivial irregular adhesion to mission name. R&R COA.
