#6253 - Apollo 1 Signed Photograph Estimate: $15,000+

Sought-after crew litho signed during a capsule inspection in 1966

Exceptional official color 10 x 8 NASA lithograph of the Apollo 1 prime crew posing in their blue flight suits with a model of the ill-fated Block I Command Module, signed in black felt tip, "Edward H. White II," "Gus Grissom," and "Roger B. Chaffee." In very good to fine condition, with a light crease to the lower left corner, and a professionally repaired 2.25" tear which runs under (but does not touch) Chaffee's last name, and is difficult to see straight-on. Accompanied by a full letter of authenticity from Beckett Authentication Services. Accompanied by a letter of provenance stating that this was purchased in 1987 from the original recipient, an employee at North American Aviation, the prime contractor for the Apollo 1 capsule, in part: "He told me that he had obtained the signatures on this photograph when all three members of the Apollo One crew came to the North American Downey (CA) facility for a crew inspection of the Apollo One capsule. He said that the flight crew did an onsite inspection of the Apollo One capsule (initially designated AS-204) at the NAA Downey facility on three dates in 1966: Feb 9th, June 24th, and August 22nd."
