Description


Breath-taking color 13.75 x 10.5 photo of the surface of the moon, with lunar rover tracks leading away from the lunar lander in the background, affixed to a 14.5 x 13.75 mount, signed and inscribed in black ink “To Jimmy Burke—this trap needs raking—my personal regards to a great pro—expensive but good! Alan Shepard 1/25/72.” Matted and framed to an overall size of 21 x 20.25. In fine condition, with some scattered light toning and foxing to mount. Accompanied by a letter of provenance from golf professional Joseph Moresco which reads, in part: “Alan Shepard was a member at Champions Golf Club in Houston Texas where Jimmy Burke was the head golf professional. As an avid golfer, Alan took many lessons from Jimmy thus evolving into a great friendship. When Alan’s moon mission was planned Jimmy presented him with a six iron that he eventually used to hit the famous golf shots on the moon’s surface…The references to golf inscribed on this item are priceless!” A beautiful oversized portrait with a great reference and direct connection to Shepard’s iconic swings on the moon. Pre-certified Steve Zarelli and RR Auction COA.
