Description


Young’s flown Personal Preference Kit bag, 5.75 x 8.75, signed and flight-certified in black felt tip, “From my personal collection, Flown on Apollo 16, John Young.” PPK is constructed of Beta cloth, with a 2″ gusset and a metal grommet at top center with original drawstring. The original sewn-on tag specifies: "KIT, PILOT'S PREFERENCE/ P/N SEB 12100018-202/ S/N 1149/ MFG. NASA MSC 4-70." There is also a small affixed gray duct tape tag with "John Young" handwritten in ink. In fine condition. Especially rare, PPKs allowed the Apollo astronauts to carry a limited number of personal items on each manned spacecraft flight—this is just the second PPK directly attributable to an astronaut that we have offered. Pre-certified Steve Zarelli and RR Auction COA.
