Description


Charles Conrad’s blue flight suit worn during recovery following the Apollo 12 mission, with an Apollo 12 mission patch on the right breast and an official NASA ‘meatball’ patch on the left, signed below in black felt tip, “My Apollo XII recovery flight suit, Splashdown-Recovery, Charles Conrad, Jr., Cdr. Apollo XII.” The original Land Mfg. Co. Flite Wear tag is sewn into the collar area, labeled “Conrad” on a small white tag below. Expected wear and soiling from use, otherwise fine condition. Lasting from November 14 to November 24, 1969, the Apollo 12 crew of Conrad, Alan Bean, and Richard Gordon returned to Earth in the Command Module Yankee Clipper with a splashdown east of American Samoa. Wearing these blue flight suits, they were soon recovered by the USS Hornet. An absolutely fantastic piece— worn at the conclusion of the Apollo 12 mission—with direct astronaut provenance. The Leon Ford Collection. Pre-certified Steve Zarelli.
