Description

Official color 10 x 8 NASA lithograph of the original Apollo 13 crew, signed in black felt tip, "James Lovell," "Ken Mattingly," and "Fred W. Haise." Two six-cent stamps are affixed in the lower corners, with Kennedy Space Center cancellations from the launch day (April 11, 1970) and return day (April 17, 1970). In fine condition. Mattingly did not end up making the flight—he was replaced by Jack Swigert three days prior to launch, when it was discovered that backup LMP Charlie Duke had contracted rubella, exposing both the prime and backup crews. Mattingly, who had never caught rubella as a child, was the only crew member not immune.
