Description


Vintage semi-glossy color 8.25 x 10.5 photo of the Mercury 7 astronauts standing before an Atlas rocket nose cone signed vertically in various inks “Alan B. Shepard, Jr.,” “Walter M. Schirra, Jr.,” “J. H. Glenn, Jr.,” “Virgil I. Grissom,” “M. Scott Carpenter,” “Donald K. Slayton,” and “Leroy S. Cooper, Jr.” Credit stamping on the reverse from the McDonnell Aircraft Corporation. Spots of soiling, scattered creasing with a crease affecting Shepard’s name, irregular ink adhesion to Grissom’s signature, some chipping to the emulsion and crazing lightly affecting Slayton’s name, and crazing across Schirra’s name that have faded its overall appearance, otherwise fine condition. Despite these technical faults, an uninscribed visually stunning example with the astronauts desirable ‘formal’ signatures—in such an unusual pose—is seldom encountered! Pre-certified Scott Cornish and RR Auction COA.
