Description

Red-numbered Gemini 4 EVA photos—the first American spacewalk

Rare set of four vintage unsigned official color glossy 8 x 10 red-numbered NASA photos of Gemini 4 pilot Ed White’s historic 20-minute spacewalk from the collection of Guenter Wendt, three of which are signed on the reverse by Wendt and stamped as being from his personal collection. All bear purple NASA caption text and “A Kodak Paper” watermarks on the reverse. In overall fine condition. Already sought-after as individual photos, this visual journey of White becoming the first American to perform a spacewalk is enhanced markedly by its uncommon near-consecutive numbering. The Guenter Wendt Collection, ex. Ken Havekotte.
