Description


Richard Gordon’s flown PPK bag carried into earth orbit on the Gemini 11 mission. Nylon bag measures 9 x 5.75 and has metal grommets along the opening and a nylon cord closure. One side of the bag is stamped, “CF550531,” and is signed in black felt tip, “Flown on Gemini XI for 72 hours! Richard Gordon PLT.” Accompanied by a certificate of authenticity from Gordon, which reads, in part: “This bag is a Personal Preference Kit (PPK) [and] was used to contain all the personal items I was allowed to take on flight.” In very good condition, with scattered staining and moderate rigidity. This artifact was exposed to the vacuum of space during Gordon's two EVAs. With only one PPK bag issued to each Gemini astronaut, there are only 20 flown examples in existence, and only three others have been offered at auction. Pre-certified Steve Zarelli and RR Auction COA.
