Description

Gene Kranz’s Apollo 13 movie jacket, size XL, signed on the inner satin lining in black felt tip, “Eugene F. Kranz, ‘Flight.’” The flight-style jacket features a soft khaki exterior with NASA ‘meatball’ and Apollo 13 patches to the right shoulder and chest, and the left chest bearing silver stitching, “Apollo 13, 1995 U.C.S.” In fine condition. Accompanied by a signed certificate of authenticity from Farthest Reaches owner Stephen Hankow, who states: “The Apollo 13 Jacket…was owned and worn by Eugene F. Kranz. In Gene’s own words, ‘I wore the jacket many times to many engagements in my early years of speaking and on a couple of occasions with the crew. It was given to me by the movie studio and I believe was the same one worn by the crew in the movie.’”
