Description


Flown printed fabric American flag, 5.75 x 3.75, carried to the moon on Apollo 13. Flag is affixed to an 8 x 10 off-white mount, with a handwritten and signed presentation from Fred Haise to astronaut Jerry Carr and his wife, which reads: “To Jerry & Jo Ann, A memento given in appreciation for your help and support during the flight of Apollo 13. This American flag flown to the Moon April 11–17, 1970 on Odessey/Aquarius. Thanks, Fred Haise.” Accompanied by a 2008 letter of provenance from JoAnn Carr, which reads, in part: “This American flag was flown aboard Apollo 13 as a thank you gesture from Fred Haise. My husband…worked closely with Fred as part of the Ground Support crew…This is part of the Carr Collection and has been in my possession since Fred presented it to us.” In fine condition. Considering no flags landed on the moon for this mission, this is just about as good as it gets for Apollo 13 artifacts. Pre-certified Steve Zarelli and RR Auction COA.
