Item 9273 - Apollo 11 and Richard Nixon Signed Photograph Catalog 463 (Oct 2015)

Back To Previous Page
(we are no longer accepting bids on this item)
Minimum Bid: $500.00
Sold Price: $6,151.95 (includes buyer's premium)


Uncommon color semi-glossy 10 x 8 photo of President Nixon congratulating the Apollo 11 crew while they undergo quarantine aboard the USS Hornet, signed in black felt tip, “Richard Nixon” and “Neil Armstrong,” and in black ink, “Mike Collins” and “Buzz Aldrin.” In fine condition, with a trivial surface impression to upper right (in no way affecting the signatures). Accompanied by a full letter of authenticity from Zarelli Space Authentication, a letter of provenance from a previous collector, and a different unsigned photo taken at the same event. Four days after landing on the moon, the crew of the Apollo 11 mission were retrieved in the mid-Pacific by the USS Hornet and placed in quarantine to prevent them from spreading ‘exotic viruses.’ Nixon flew to the ship shortly thereafter to extend his congratulations. A highly desirable image bearing bold signatures from America’s most famed astronauts, and one of the country’s most divisive leaders.
