Description

"Mission Aborted" cover with signatures of all 'four' Apollo 13 crew members

Hugely appealing 'Type 1 insurance-style' cover with a color cachet of the Apollo 13 mission emblem, with uncommon "Mission Aborted" postmark of April 14 1970, the date of the service module's oxygen tank explosion, signed in black felt tip by James Lovell, Ken Mattingly, Fred Haise, and Jack Swigert. In very fine condition. A particularly scarce cover boasting signatures from four crew members, including the uncommon pairing of original and backup CMPs Mattingly and Swigert. A rare and exceptional Apollo 13 offering.
