Item 9034 - Yuri Gagarin Signed Document Catalog 463 (Oct 2015)

Back To Previous Page
(we are no longer accepting bids on this item)
Minimum Bid: $200.00
Sold Price: $943.25 (includes buyer's premium)


Partly-printed DS in Cyrllic, one page, 11.5 x 7.75, no date. The document reads, in full (translated): “Attention! The button for the team ‘Ignition’ is to be pushed at the indication of Chronometer No. 3971, 11 hrs. 59 min. 42 sec. Tolerance: +30 min.” Boldly signed at the conclusion by Gagarin, who adds the date below, “14. 06. 63.” Also signed in the lower portion by Nikolai Kamanin (the Commander of the Cosmonaut Corps.) and S.S. Lavrov (an engineer who worked as a ballistics expert with Korolev on the early rocket designs). In fine condition, with a spot of dampstaining, and slight creasing and a few small tears to edges. On June 14, 1963, the Vostok space program recorded yet another historic first when Valery Bykovsky set the record for the longest solo orbital flight. Presumably a cue card used in coordinating the launch sequence of the Vostok 5, this visually appealing instruction sheet was signed by Gagarin at the height of his fame, and just two years removed from becoming the first man to reach outer space. Pre-certified Zarelli Space Authentication.
