Description


Apollo 16 Launch Day cover, 6.5 x 3, with a cachet on the reverse honoring the April 16, 1972, launch, signed vertically on the front in blue and black ballpoint, “James A. McDivitt,” “Elliot See,” “Edward H. White II,” “Neil Armstrong,” “Charles Conrad, Jr.,” “James Lovell,” “Thomas P. Stafford,” “Frank Borman,” and “John Young.” In fine condition. The Group 2 astronauts were chosen as the nation's primary space pilots for commanding Gemini and Apollo spaceflights from 1965-75. When they were chosen in 1962 as the second group of NASA astronauts, only the first original 7 were working astronauts at the time. The Group 2 selections expanded the number from 7 to 16 within the first four years the space agency had hired astronauts as a vital part of our country's space exploration program. An extremely desirable grouping, seldom offered on a single item. Pre-certified Steve Zarelli and RR Auction COA.
