Description

Armstrong and his Apollo 11 crew send “sincere best wishes” via a flag from first lunar landing mission

Remarkable flight-flown printed fabric American flag, 6 x 4, flown aboard Apollo 11 during its historic flight to the moon. Flag is affixed by its corners to a 10 x 12 certificate stating “This flag traveled to the moon with Apollo 11, the first manned lunar landing, July 20, 1969,” and signed in black felt tip by astronauts Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin, and Michael Collins. Armstrong has also added an inscription that reads, “To Rooster with sincere best wishes from Apollo 11.” Rooster Andrews was the owner of a very successful sports shop business in Texas, a keen space collector, and a friend of the astronauts. In fine condition, with a block of light even toning covering most of the certificate, small squares of toning to two corners of flag from adhesive on reverse, and the signatures a shade light. Any Apollo 11 artifact is desirable in its own right, with the symbol of the United States and the first moonwalker’s heartfelt inscription making it all the more desirable! Pre-certified Scott Cornish and RRAuction COA.
