Item 645 - Shuttle Atlantis Flags Catalog 396 (Nov 2012)

Back To Previous Page
(we are no longer accepting bids on this item)
Minimum Bid: $250.00
Sold Price: $787.20 (includes buyer's premium)


Two flown printed fabric flags, one Soviet Union and one United States, both measuring 5.5 x 4, carried on board the shuttle Atlantis mission STS-30 in 1989. Flags are affixed to a 16.5 x 12.5 mount along with a presentation caption which reads, “Presented to Mr. Andrei Konstantinovich Sokolov, with the most sincere appreciation of your hospitality during our trip to the Soviet Union. This Union of Soviet Socialist Republics flag and United States of America flag were flown aboard the Orbiter Atlantis, STS-30, May 4-8, 1989,” and a color glossy 11 x 14 photo of a shuttle launch signed by Paul Weitz and Jerry Ross. Double matted to an overall size of 20 x 16. In fine condition, with rubbing and soiling to finish of photo as well as two very faint signatures. Andrei Konstantinovich Sokolov was the ‘art partner’ of Alexei Leonov. There are many space art books, stamps, and postcards with his paintings. Any space collector would be remiss to have a piece of his art missing from their collection. A nice association piece. Pre-certified Steve Zarelli and RR Auction COA.
