Description

Rare foil print signed by the Apollo 11 crew

Sought-after color 7.5 x 11.25 foil etch reproduction of a John Berkey painting entitled 'One Giant Leap,' which depicts Neil Armstrong standing on the surface of the moon, with Buzz Aldrin, the Lunar Module Eagle, the Earth, and small images of the rocket launch, orbiting Command Module Columbia, and the American flag visible in the background. The foil etch is affixed to the original 10.5 x 13.5 presentation mount, which is signed in black ink, "Neil Armstrong," "Buzz Aldrin," and "M. Collins." Handsomely matted and framed to an overall size of 20.5 x 24.5. Includes the original information sheet for the Berkey painting. In fine condition, with some creasing to the image. Only 75 of these personally autographed foil pictures were made for the space exhibit at the 1972 North Carolina State Fair. A wonderful display piece featuring a rare artist's portrayal of both Armstrong and Aldrin on the lunar surface, signed in full by the heroic astronauts of the Apollo 11 mission.
