Theodore C. Freeman Signed Photograph

This lot has closed

Estimate: $400+

Description

Air Force pilot (1930-1964) selected as part of the third group of astronauts. He was killed on October 31, 1964, when a goose smashed through the cockpit canopy of his T-38 Talon jet trainer. He ejected from the aircraft, but was too close to the ground for his parachute to open properly. Vintage glossy 4 x 5 photo of Freeman in a suit and tie, signed in fountain pen, "Ted Freeman, Capt. USAF (NASA)." In very good to fine condition, with a paperclip impression touching Freeman's head, creasing to the lower corners, and poor-to-moderate signature contrast.
