Description


Andriyan Nikolayev’s incredible collection of thirty-eight photographs signed and inscribed to him in ink and felt tip by various aviation and aerospace pioneers. Almost exclusively comprised of official color glossy 8 x 10 ‘red number’ NASA photos and lithographs, this assemblage of pilots and astronauts includes: Buzz Aldrin, Michael Collins, Dick Gordon, John Young, Alan Bean, Tom Stafford, Ken Mattingly, Dave Scott (2), James McDivitt, Charles Conrad, Bruce McCandless, James H. Doolittle (B&W glossy), Joe Allen, Karol J. Bobko, Vance Brand, Jerry Carr, Phil Chapman, Bob Crippen, Walt Cunningham, Charlie Duke, Alfred Worden, Gordon Fullerton, Owen Garriott, Bill Pogue, Jack Schmitt, Hank Hartsfield, Fred Haise, Karl G. Henize, Jim Irwin, Joe Kerwin, W. B. Lenoir, Don Lind, Bob Overmyer, Robert Parker, Pete Peterson, William Thornton, and Richard Truly. The photos are housed in a maroon three-ring binder with a matching slipcase. In overall fine condition, with two spots of toning to the Doolittle, and a stray ink mark to the Gordon. Nikolayev became the third cosmonaut to fly into space when his Vostok–3KA spacecraft launched on August 11, 1962, a feat in which Nikolayev orbited the Earth 64 times over a four-day span. Eight years later, and following the completion of Soyuz 9—a record-setting 18-day mission shared with Vitali Sevastyanov—Nikolayev embarked on a tour of the United States during which he obtained this unprecedented gathering of signatures. A truly amazing lot of uncommon signed photos, each individually signed to one of space’s most influential explorers. Pre-certified Zarelli Space Authentication.
