Item 405 - Apollo 14 Catalog 429 (May 2014)

Minimum Bid: $300.00
Sold Price: $2,271.15 (includes buyer's premium)


Amazing 3-D map of the Apollo 14 landing site at the Fra Mauro Highlands, 27.75 x 25.5, signed in ink by all three of the mission’s astronauts: Alan Shepard, Edgar Mitchell, and Stuart Roosa. The map’s surface is raised and lowered to follow the lunar landscape and craters, and the path of the astronauts’ journey is labeled with a red line. Framed to an overall size of 28 x 30. Shepard and Mitchell signatures light but legible, a slight brush to Shepard’s signature, and Roosa’s signature very faded with only portions visible, otherwise fine condition. In addition to its impressive size and unusual topography, the most interesting element of this map is that it shows the path that Shepard and Mitchell took during their second moonwalk, during which they attempted to find the 1,000-foot wide Cone Crater. Due to the irregular slopes and hills of the surface, they struggled to find the crater’s rim and turned around. As seen here, they came extremely close to reaching their destination—now estimated within 30 meters—before abandoning the journey. Because this confusion was caused by the moon’s terrain, this style of three-dimensional map is an especially appropriate Apollo 14 item. Pre-certified Steve Zarelli and RR Auction COA.
