Vintage NASA portraits of the entire Mercury 7

Outstanding complete set of vintage official glossy 8 x 10 black-numbered NASA photos of the Mercury 7 astronauts, each signed neatly in blue ballpoint: "Virgil I. Grissom," "Leroy G. Cooper, Jr.," "Walter M. Schirra, Jr.," "Alan B. Shepard, Jr.," "Donald K. Slayton," "M. Scott Carpenter," and "Best wishes—John H. Glenn, Jr., Mercury Astronaut." In overall very good to fine condition, with creasing and tape stains to the corners, and surface impressions from Glenn's inscription, which has been evidently erased. As individual lots, these uninscribed NASA portraits are seldom seen and extremely desirable; as a full compilation, this group lot represents a unique opportunity to own matching vintage photos signed by each of America's original seven astronauts. A simply remarkable assemblage.
