Flown double-sided cue card carried to the lunar surface on board the Lunar Module Challenger during Apollo 17, 10.5 x 8, signed and flight-certified in the right margin on the reverse in black felt tip, “Flown to the lunar surface aboard Apollo XVII, Eugene A. Cernan.” The card is headed “Contingency EVT (2 OPS),” and provides procedures for the crew to move from the LM to the CM via an extravehicular transfer if the docking or tunnel were to fail. In fine condition. Accompanied by a signed letter of provenance from Cernan, in part: “The Apollo 17 Lunar Module Contingency EVT (2 OPS) cue card would have been used if we had experienced a problem during docking of the Lunar Module and Command Module upon rendezvous after returning from the lunar surface. It provides contingencies in the event that we could not pass through the tunnel from the LM to the CM and outlined rules and procedures in case an EVA was required for us to transfer from the LM to the CM.” Also accompanied by a photo of Cernan with the cue card. An extremely desirable piece flown to the moon and ready to be used in the event of unforeseen circumstances returning home. Pre-certified Steve Zarelli.
