Color limited edition 36 x 24 print, numbered #485/900, signed in black felt tip by Buzz Aldrin (adding “The crew of Apollo 11 We came in peace for all mankind”), and Michael Collins, and in ink by Neil Armstrong. Also signed in pencil by artist Anne Klingenburg. Rolled and in very good condition, with wrinkling, pinholes at the corners, paper loss, long strip of old tape residue at the top border, staining along the edges, and Armstrong’s signature very light. Conditional issues along border could be matted out. The original painting was presented to Armstrong at the Neil Armstrong Air and Space Museum in Wapakoneta, Ohio in the late 1980s, and according to the consignor this print was signed by the moonwalker at that event. It was subsequently signed by the remainder of the Apollo 11 crew. Collins’ signature is accompanied by a certificate of authenticity from Astronaut Central which pictures a photo of Collins signing the print and also a CD containing several images of Collins signing and displaying the print. Also included is a CD comprised of several photos of Aldrin at Spacefest signing the print. Impeccable documentation and a lesser-seen format for Apollo 11 crew signed items. Pre-certified Scott Cornish and RR Auction COA.
