Minimum Bid: $300.00
Sold Price: $2,962.80 (includes buyer's premium)


Unique vintage matte-finish 10.5 x 14 photo of an older gentleman wearing a spacesuit-type helmet, rumored to be an LTV employee in the early 1960s, signed in ink and ballpoint by 23 astronauts. Signatures were obtained by an LTV Astronautics Division pilot who worked with their Manned Aerospace Flight Simulator program. Signers include: "Elliot See," "Scott Carpenter*," "Neil Armstrong," "Edward H White II*," "Alan B Shepard Jr," "Gus Grissom,” adding a Mercury Seven symbol, "James Lovell," "Wally Schirra,” adding a Sigma 7 symbol, "Thomas P Stafford*," "James A McDivitt*,” "Charles Conrad Jr*," "Bill Anders*," "Buzz Aldrin," "Charlie Bassett*," "Gene Cernan," "Walt Cunningham," "Gordon Cooper," "Alan L Bean,” "Frank Borman," "Roger B Chaffee," "C Williams," "John Young," and "D K Slayton.” There are two additional very light impressions of signatures above and below Slayton’s signature, one being that of Chris Kraft. The ink on several of the signatures has faded through the years, likely from display. Most are quite acceptable, but seven are barely visible except under light—these are indicated above with an asterisk (*) next to the name. Aforementioned light signatures, scattered creases and edge wear, some mild rippling and silvering, some irregular ink adhesion to a few of the signatures, and a few small tears, mainly to the edges, with a small one above Young’s signature, otherwise very good condition. Possibly a one-of-a-kind assemblage of astronauts, including seven of the twelve moonwalkers, as the original crew of Gemini 9 and the crew of Apollo 1. RRAuction COA.
