Minimum Bid: $1,000.00
Sold Price: $31,890.00 (includes buyer's premium)


Extremely rare flown Apollo 11 postal cover, from Buzz Aldrin’s personal collection, bearing a color cachet honoring the first manned lunar expedition, postmarked August 11, Webster, Texas, and clearly stamped, "Delayed in quarantine at Lunar Receiving Laboratory M.S.C.-Houston, Texas.” Signed in blue felt tip by Neil Armstrong, Michael Collins, and Buzz Aldrin. Cover is also notated at the top in black ballpoint by Aldrin “EEA 51, Carried to the Moon on Apollo 11.” Although the crew splashed down July 24, 1969, they and their equipment and belongings were immediately quarantined until August 11, when the covers were able to be postmarked at the Webster, Texas, Post Office. In very fine condition. A superb example, these covers are seldom seen where part of Armstrong's signature is not obscured by the color cachet. These covers represent the pinnacle for any collection of space-related covers. Pre-certified Steve Zarelli and RR Auction COA.
