Description


Vintage matte-finish 10 x 8 photo of the Mercury 7 astronauts with a model of a rocket, signed in the lower border in various inks “Alan B. Shepard, Jr.,” “Walter M. Schirra, Jr.,” “John H. Glenn, Jr.,” “Virgil I. Grissom,” “M. Scott Carpenter,” “Donald K. Slayton,” and “Leroy S. Cooper, Jr.” In fine condition, with some trivial edge trimming, a ding to top edge, and Schirra’s signature a shade lighter than the rest. Accompanied by a certificate of authenticity from Lowell Grissom, Gus Grissom’s brother, stating “the attached photo was given to me by my brother, Astronaut Virgil ‘Gus‘ Grissom, shortly after he was selected as one of the original seven Mercury astronauts in 1959.” A very presentable uninscribed example with the astronauts’ desirable ‘formal’ signatures. Pre-certified Steve Zarelli and RR Auction COA.
