Friendship 7 launch date postal cover, signed along the left side in ink and ballpoint by all nine Group 2 astronauts: “Edward H. White II,” “Elliot See,” “Neil Armstrong,” “James A. McDivitt,” “Charles Conrad, Jr.,” “John Young,” “James Lovell,” “Thomas P. Stafford,” and “Frank Borman.” In fine condition. 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.
