Apollo Beta cloth name tags—including six signed by moonwalkers including Buzz Aldrin and Gene Cernan
Collection of 21 Beta cloth name tags representing all of the primary astronauts from Apollo Missions 11–17, 7.5 x 2.5, each printed with a different astronaut’s name. Seven of the tags, representing one member from each of the missions, have been signed in ink or felt tip by the respective astronaut. Name tags are for: N. Armstrong, M. Collins, E. Aldrin (signed “Buzz Aldrin”), C. Conrad, R. Gordon, A. Bean (signed “Alan Bean, Apollo 12, Skylab 3”), F. Haise, J. Swigert, J. Lovell (signed “Jim Lovell, Apollo 8, 13”), A. Shepard, S. Roosa, E. Mitchell (signed “Edgar Mitchell, Apollo 14”), J. Irwin, A. Worden, D. Scott (signed “Dave Scott, CDR Apollo 15”), T. Mattingly, J. Young, C. Duke (signed “Charles M. Duke, Jr., Apollo 16 Moonwalker”), H. Schmitt, R. Evans, and E. Cernan (signed “Gene Cernan, Apollo X–XVII”). The original consignor noted that the tags, made from the same cloth used to make space suits, were extras from those made for use by the astronauts. In fine condition, with stray threads at edges (slightly touching paraph of Aldrin’s signature) and a few faint adhesive remnants to edges. An unusual group spanning the entire history of America’s manned moon missions. Pre-certified Scott Cornish and RR Auction COA.
