(we are no longer accepting bids on this item)
Minimum Bid: $200.00
Sold Price: $584.33 (includes buyer's premium)


Three items: a TLS signed “M. Scott Carpenter,” one page, 8 x 10.5, NASA letterhead, no date but circa 1963, in part: “This letter is to express the extent of my faith, respect and admiration for Mr. Guenter Wendt. As pilot of Aurora-7 on this nation’s second manned orbital flight and as backup pilot of John Glenn’s flight, I had ample opportunity to work directly with Mr. Wendt…In retrospect, I find myself wondering how we ever would have done the job without him and feel certain that wherever Mr. Wendt applies his talents, his associates will wonder how they would ever do the job without him”; an ANS signed “Scott,” one page, 8 x 5, no date, apparently transmitting the recommendation, in full: “Dear Guenter, Hope this is what you had in mind—I mean what I say you’re a great guy”; and an official glossy 8 x 10 NASA photo of Wendt with Carpenter preparing for a flight simulation, signed vertically in black felt tip by Wendt. In overall fine condition. The Guenter Wendt Collection, ex. Ken Havekotte. Pre-certified Zarelli Space Authentication.
