Description

Important cue cards flown to the lunar surface for their first moonwalk

Two flown two-sided cue cards explaining procedures for Gene Cernan and Harrison Schmitt’s first EVA on the lunar surface, each 10.5 x 8 and signed vertically in the left border, “Flown to the Lunar Surface aboard Apollo XVII, E. A. Cernan.” The cards, dated November 7, 1972, are identified as “EVA 1 PREP” and “POST EVA 1,” and were originally taped together to form a folding card, one side with pre-EVA preparations and one side with post-EVA instructions to close out the moonwalk. In overall fine condition. Items originate from Cernan’s personal collection and are accompanied by his signed letter of provenance and a photo of Cernan posing with the cards. This first EVA lasted over seven hours, during which Cernan and Schmitt offloaded equipment including the Lunar Roving Vehicle, deployed the ALSEP, and collected samples. A rare set of historically important items from the last mission to the moon. Pre-certified Steve Zarelli and RR Auction COA.
