Description


Scarce vintage ballpoint signatures of “Virgil I. Grissom,” “Alan B. Shepard, Jr.,” and “John H. Glenn, Jr.,” on a 6.25 x 2.5 Fedders Island souvenir note for “A Cool 100 Bucks” from Grand Bahama Island, dated in another hand, “5/6/61.” Beginning of Grissom and Shepard signatures partially obscured by emblem, small bit of paper loss to bottom edge, and a tiny hole to center, otherwise fine condition. Obtained by official Project Mercury photographer Elnard G. Westberg, this note is one of only two items he had signed while at Grand Bahama Island, the location for Shepard’s exhaustive two-day debriefing after his historic Freedom 7 flight on May 5, 1961. The additional signatures of Grissom and Glenn—fellow Mercury team members assigned to help interview Shepard—make this a highly sought-after item that features the first three American astronauts in space. Pre-certified Steve Zarelli.
