Description


Retired Soviet/Russian cosmonaut and Air Force Major General who, in 1965, became the first human to conduct a space walk. Alexei Leonov Soviet Union ‘space identity card.’ Contained within a 3 x 4.5 booklet, the two-page identification is printed in Cyrillic, with an additional message printed in six different languages including English, French, German, Spanish, and Italian, and bears his photo and ink signature. The message requests authorities to aid and assist the holder. The pages are largely separated from the spine. This documentation was carried by Leonov during the historic Apollo-Soyuz mission and meant to be used as identification should his spacecraft have landed anywhere other than the Soviet Union! A unique piece of Soviet space history. Pre-certified Scott Cornish and RR Auction COA.
