Vintage color 8 x 10 NASA photo of Armstrong in civilian clothing, signed and inscribed in black felt tip, “To Mark—Best Wishes—Neil Armstrong, Gemini VIII.” In very good condition, with upper right corner crease, surface scratches that touch his face and portions of signature and inscription, scattered staining, and an irregular block of soiling. A unique sentiment that pre-dates the moonwalker’s involvement with the Apollo program. Accompanied by a letter of authenticity from the photograph’s original recipient stating this photo was originally obtained for him by a former mayor of Armstrong’s hometown of Wapakoneta, Ohio. Pre-certified Scott Cornish and RR Auction COA.
