Description


Flown metal comb personally-owned and -used by Schirra during the Apollo 7 mission, measuring 5 x 1, manufactured by Goody. Presented in a 3.5 x 11.5 display. In fine condition, with general marks and scratches from use. Accompanied by a signed letter of provenance from Schirra, in part: “This is my Goody comb that I used during the flight of Apollo 7 during October 11 through 22, 1968. It was part of my personal hygiene kit carried on Apollo 7. The comb was important to have while preparing for our several television broadcasts from the spacecraft. No doubt it helped me win my Emmy for those live space TV shows!” Although Schirra retired from NASA after the Apollo 7 flight, he continued to work in space show business—for later Apollo missions, he served as a consultant to CBS News and Walter Cronkite to co-anchor the network's coverage of the seven moon landing missions. An extremely desirable personal piece with an entertaining background story.
