Item 42 - Wernher von Braun Catalog 442 (Nov 2014)

Back To Previous Page
(we are no longer accepting bids on this item)
Minimum Bid: $200.00
Sold Price: $950.60 (includes buyer's premium)


The Explorers Club membership card issued to Wernher Von Braun in 1967, 3.75 x 2.25, signed along the bottom in black felt tip. Also bears a facsimile signature of the club’s secretary. In very good condition, with wear to edges and some brushing to signature. Founded in New York in 1905, The Explorers Club served as a meeting point for explorers and scientists dedicated to the advancement of field research—other members of the organization included Robert Peary, Roald Amundsen, Edmund Hillary, and the Apollo 11 crew. The year 1967 saw tremendous advances in space exploration, and von Braun saw his crowning achievement come to fruition—his Saturn V rocket successfully made its first test flight on November 9, 1967, and would launch man to the moon by the end of the decade. Such significant personally-owned von Braun items rarely come to the marketplace. Pre-certified Steve Zarelli and RR Auction COA.
