Description


Felt tip and pencil sketch on an off-white 20.25 x 17 sheet of artist’s cardstock, showing a caricature of Wendt falling over backwards at Cape Canaveral and exclaiming “Vatefer me, I vant tu tank you you gizes,” signed at the bottom in felt tip and ballpoint by Gene Cernan and over thirty members of “Fall Back Crew No. 12.” Also signed on the reverse by Wendt and stamped as being from his personal collection. Scattered soiling, foxing, and irregularly trimmed edges, otherwise fine condition. This joke is based on the ‘fallback’ area where Wendt’s White Room team would stay after securing the crew inside the spacecraft, an area where they could quickly respond to an emergency but was out of proximity of danger to launch operations or a pad accident. A humorous personal item from Wendt’s collection. The Leon Ford Collection. Pre-certified Zarelli Space Authentication.
