Description

‘Red-numbered’ portrait from Cernan’s personal collection

Extremely rare vintage official semi-glossy 10 x 8 ‘red-numbered’ NASA photo of the Apollo 1 crew posing in their blue flight suits with a model of their capsule, signed in black felt tip, “Ed White,” “Gus Grissom,” and “Roger Chaffee.” Photo is also signed across the top in black felt tip, “Presented to me by the Apollo 1 crew—Gene Cernan, ‘Last Man on the Moon.’” Reverse of photo also bears a Eugene Cernan Space Collection stamp. A couple light bends and surface marks, and scattered mild vertical streaking to finish, otherwise fine condition. Accompanied by a custom-made photo of Cernan holding the photo. Only a very small number of these crew-signed portraits are known to exist, with this particular example exhibiting a fantastic personal connection between the first and last Apollo lunar missions. Pre-certified Steve Zarelli and RR Auction COA.
