"To Bob Crippen"—flown cue card and eraser from the first Skylab mission

Flown double-sided cue card used on board the first Skylab mission, measures 4.5 x 7.5, and bears extensive pencil and felt tip notations. The back of the card is dated May 23, 1973, and is headed: “Flare Prep From Unattended,” with the front of the card featuring various detailed procedures related to flare prep. Two small swatches of Velcro are affixed to each side of the card. Also included is a flown eraser, still contained in its clean room packaging, labeled, “Skylab Eraser…P/N SEB32100025-324.” Both the card and eraser are affixed to a 17 x 10 wooden plaque, along with a Skylab 1 mission patch and an engraved plate bearing facsimile signatures of Charles Conrad, Joe Kerwin, and Paul Weitz; the plate read reads: “To Bob Crippen, with our thanks for your superb work on the ATM cue cards, and the changes to the cards, and the changes to the changes to…We present the evidence, flown on Skylab I.” In fine condition. From the personal collection of Space Shuttle astronaut Bob Crippen. An impressive tandem of flown artifacts presented to an astronaut who served as support crew for the first three Skylab missions.
