Description


Vintage 8 x 10 printed paperstock photo bearing individual portraits of the Mercury astronauts in suits and ties, with the headline stating “Mercury Astronauts, One of these seven men to be chosen for trip to outerspace,” signed in brown ink under their portraits “M. Scott Carpenter,” “Leroy G. Cooper, Jr.,” “John H. Glenn, Jr.,” “Virgil I. Grissom,” “Walter M. Schirra, Jr.,” “Alan B. Shepard, Jr.,” and “Donald K. Slayton.” In very good condition, with scattered light toning and creasing, some mild dampstaining affecting first name of Schirra’s signature, and unrelated pencil notations on reverse. A most unusual and very early portrait, bearing the astronauts’ desirable ‘formal’ signatures, produced before Shepard was chosen as the first in early January of 1961. Pre-certified Steve Zarelli and RR Auction COA.
