Minimum Bid: $200.00
Sold Price: $444.00 (includes buyer's premium)


Full sheet of 50 eight-cent A Decade of Achievement: United States in Space postage stamps, signed in black ink and felt tip by 22 astronauts from the Apollo, Skylab, and early shuttle missions. Signers are: Jack Swigert, Fred Haise, Ron Evans, Bill Pogue, Vance Brand, Bob Crippen, Ken Mattingly, Joe Engle, Jack Lousma, Paul Weitz, Jerry Carr, Joe Allen, Alan Bean, Tom Stafford, Phil Chapman, Donn Eisele, Gordon Fullerton, Ed Gibson, Hank Hartsfield, Karl Henize, Charlie Duke, and Richard Truly. A few partially separated border perforations, mild toning, and light to moderate contrast to some of the signatures, otherwise fine condition. Stamps were most likely signed at NASA around 1972. Chapman is scarce in any form as he resigned from NASA in 1972, just five years after his selection, due to his strong opposition against building the Space Shuttle. A unique collection of signatures representing the vast majority of astronauts still active as the Apollo program came to an end. Pre-certified Steve Zarelli and RR Auction COA.
