Minimum Bid: $200.00
Sold Price: $352.80 (includes buyer's premium)


Handwritten speech, unsigned, on two light yellow 8.5 x 11 lined sheets. A wonderfully humorous and clever speech given by Irwin to a group of Realtors in Colorado Springs at an unknown date. Irwin is creatively describing the moon as one would describe a piece of real estate in a listing. In part: "…Wonderful View-towering mountains twice as high as Pikes Peak-Seems like you can see forever. No Smog-No pollution at all - No Air. No noise. Very Fertile, but no trees-No Grass to cut or water No Water… No need for Fire Insurance-No oxygen… May be shown with appointment with the lister. Commuting is a little expensive. Recommend sharing a ride. Terms are moon high." In fine condition, with some light creasing and staple holes to top left corner. Accompanied by one of Irwin’s High Flight business cards, signed in black felt tip. Unique and very entertaining. Likely one of the most creative handwritten lunar descriptions by a moonwalker in existence. Pre-certified Steve Zarelli and RR Auction COA.
