Description


Shepard’s Gemini 3 training-used gloves custom-made to accompany his G2-C space suit that had already been fitted to him for the flight. The white label white inside each glove reads: “Glove, Space Suit: NASA Designation GG-2C-10, David Clark Co. Inc., Part number ACS 1003, Serial number 110, size Shepard.” Gemini gloves in general are almost never available. Gloves show some slight age deterioration and expected hard use from training. Shepard had been selected to command the first Gemini mission, but would be grounded due to a medical condition. Gemini gloves are seldom-offered to the public, especially those of an original Mercury astronaut and future moonwalker. RRAuction COA.
