Description

Six moonwalkers sign a vintage "12 to the Moon" lobby card

Fantastic original color Columbia Pictures lobby card for the 1960 science fiction film 12 to the Moon, 14 x 11, signed in gold ink by six moonwalkers, representing one from each lunar landing: "Buzz Aldrin, Apollo XI LMP, July 20, 1969," "Alan Bean, Apollo 12 LMP, Nov. 19, 1969," "Edgar Mitchell, Apollo 14 LMP, February 5, 1971," "Dave Scott, Apollo 15 CDR, July 30-Aug 2, 1971," "Charlie Duke, Apollo 16 LMP, April 20, 1972," and "Gene Cernan, Apollo XVII CDR, December 11, 1972." In fine condition.

This sought-after lobby card bears an uncanny concordance with the actual outcomes of the Apollo program: it was released in 1960, long before anyone knew there would actually be twelve moonwalkers. Text at the top reads, "Land on the Moon with the First Intrepid Astronauts"—the name of the Apollo 12 Lunar Module was 'Intrepid.' Further, it was distributed by 'Columbia'—the name of the Apollo 11 Command Module. An immensely desirable item that boasts classic sci-fi artwork and a truly amazing sextet of moonwalker autographs, with each astronaut adding their mission, position, and landing date.
