Two items: TLS, one page, 7.25 x 9.5, NASA letterhead, stamp-dated December 1, 1962. Letter in response to sent congratulations. In full: “Your letter of congratulations is most appreciated, for to know that people not known to us personally are interested in our recent appointments as astronaut trainees makes us aware of their enthusiasm about the manned space flight program. Please accept the enclosed autographed item in appreciation of your interest”; and a color glossy 7.25 x 9.5 photo of Armstrong posing in his space suit against a lunar background, signed in blue felt tip. Both are double matted and framed together with a small plaque, to an overall size of 28.5 x 25. In very good to fine condition, with several small areas of toning and staining to letter, most likely from show-through of adhesive on reverse, and a few scattered light creases and ripples to photo. A very early piece of correspondence from Armstrong, who had just been chosen as a member of the ‘New Nine’ in September of 1962, which shows the beginnings of the public’s love affair with space travel. Pre-certified Steve Zarelli and RR Auction COA.
