Description

The tragic heroes of Apollo 1

Extremely rare color official glossy 9.5 x 7 red-numbered NASA photo of the Apollo 1 prime crew posing in their blue flight suits with a model of the ill-fated Block I Command Module, signed in black felt tip, "Ed White," "Gus Grissom," and "Roger Chaffee." Handsomely framed with UV-resistant glass and acid-free matting to an overall size of 19.25 x 17.25. In fine condition, with a few spots to the emulsion in the upper background area; red-numbered designation below matting. Photos signed by the three-man crew of the Apollo 1 mission are considered the rarest of all the official NASA portraits, with this example elevated all the more for its lack of inscription, desirable red-numbered status, and for its terrific display value. A must-have for the serious space collector.
