Description


Collection of nine letters consisting of three ALSs and five TLSs, dated between 1967 and 1971. Letters are signed by astronauts Fred Haise, John Young, Jim McDivitt, Bruce McCandless II, William Thornton, Don Lind, Jerry Carr, Gordon Fullerton, and Bob Overmyer. A small sampling of the letters includes: from Jerry Carr, “Dave Scott is extremely pleased with the performance of our first lunar rover. As we hoped, it performed better than advertised. It promises to be a decided asset to Apollo 16 & 17.”; and Bob Overmyer writes: “I doubt the death of the three Russian cosmonauts will have much impact on our program, especially since they announced that it was due to a space craft failure. It is hard to argue with the success of our Apollo command module.” In fine condition, with some mild toning to a few letters. Pre-certified Steve Zarelli and RR Auction COA.
