Description

“It was a beautiful view—thanks for your help getting me here”

Rare color glossy 10 x 8 red-numbered NASA photo of White during his historic spacewalk, signed and inscribed in black ink, “To Guenter—It was a beautiful view—thanks for your help getting me here, Edward H. White II, Gemini IV, 3 June ’65.” Also signed on the reverse by Wendt and stamped as being from his personal collection. Reverse bears “A Kodak Paper” watermarks. In fine condition. One of the most famous pre-Apollo space photographs, this is an incredibly desirable signed image even without the remarkable inscription; White’s outstanding expression of gratitude to the NASA padleader enhances it even further as an unmistakably unique piece. The Guenter Wendt Collection, ex. Ken Havekotte. Pre-certified Zarelli Space Authentication.
