Minimum Bid: $200.00
Sold Price: $396.90 (includes buyer's premium)


Three TLSs from Scott Carpenter, John Glenn, and Wally Schirra, each one page, 8 x 10.5, NASA letterhead, dated 1963. All were written in response to autograph requests from a Boy Scouts of America scoutmaster in Wisconsin, and most feature insightful comments regarding the Boy Scouts. Carpenter’s letter, in part: “I am quite a champion of scouting. I believe that the credo of the boy scouts is one of the finest guides to the good life which a boy may follow.” Glenn’s letter, in part: “If we had to pick the one most important thing that scouting teaches, I think we would find it in the first part of the Scout Oath ‘On my honor I will do my best to do my duty to God and my country.’” Schirra’s letter, in part: “I can think of nothing more worthwhile than scout training for boys. Our nation can, I think, be justly proud of today’s scouts among whom we shall look for our leadership of tomorrow.” In overall fine condition. A fine grouping of early Mercury letters with excellent content. Pre-certified Steve Zarelli and RR Auction COA.
