Description

Extremely rare NASA photo of the ill-fated astronaut

Group 5 astronaut (1930–1967) who briefly served on the Apollo 7 support crew before being killed in an automobile accident. Superlative color vintage 8 x 10 NASA photo of Givens posing with a model capsule, boldly signed and inscribed in blue felt tip “Good luck Nancy, We’ll miss you, Edward Givens, Jr.” In fine condition. Givens is one of the most difficult astronaut autographs to acquire, especially in signed photos—this is the only one we have ever encountered. A superb portrait with a flawless signature, this must be one of the finest Givens items extant. Pre-certified Steve Zarelli and RR Auction COA.
