Description

NASA’s ‘New Nine’ lend their names to a Gemini cover

Commemorative cover with a cachet honoring the Gemini two-man spacecraft, signed in blue and black ballpoint by all nine astronauts: Neil Armstrong, Edward H. White II, Elliot See, James Lovell, James McDivitt, Charles Conrad, Thomas Stafford, John Young, and Frank Borman. Pencil notation to lower right corner and cancellation marks and stamp affecting Borman’s signature, otherwise fine condition. All but See would fly in the Gemini program. He was slated to be the commander of Gemini 9, but died in a plane crash before the mission. The importance of the Gemini project cannot be overstated as it bridged the gap between the Mercury and Apollo programs, enabling two of these Gemini astronauts to walk on the moon. Pre-certified Steve Zarelli and RR Auction COA.
