Description

Cocktail napkin signed 13 NASA astronauts, including Bassett, Chaffee, Freeman, and Williams

Vintage cocktail napkin signed in ink and ballpoint by 13 of NASA’s earliest astronauts, which includes the majority of Group 3 (sans Dave Scott and Alan Bean), and one member of Group 2 (Frank Borman). The off-white napkin measures 9.25 x 4.75 unfolded, and features the following names: “Rusty Schweickart,” “Buzz Aldrin,” “Donn Eisele,” “Michael Collins,” “Best wishes Steven, Charlie Bassett,” “Walter Cunningham,” “Ted Freeman,” “Roger B. Chaffee,” “Frank Borman,” “Dick Gordon, Jr.,” “Gene Cernan,” “C. Williams,” and “Bill Anders.” In very good to fine condition, with light overall creasing. The consignor notes that the napkin originates from the collection of a longtime senior executive at NASA. A desirable and sought-after assemblage of legendary names, some of whom would die too young, and others who would walk on the moon.
