Description


Fantastic Apollo–era repair kit pouch containing materials for spacesuit repair, measuring 6 x 6 closed, signed on the front in blue and black felt tip by Buzz Aldrin, Alan Bean, Edgar Mitchell, Dave Scott, Charlie Duke, Gene Cernan, Al Worden, Fred Haise, Richard Gordon, Walt Cunningham, Jim McDivitt, Jack Lousma, Bill Pogue, Vance Brand, Paul Weitz, Ed Gibson, and Jerry Carr, and signed on the reverse by Owen Garriott and Joe Kerwin. A label inside the kit is struck through and labeled in red ink, “Class III,” and identifies the kit as “Spec. CP 1003, Item: EMU Maintenance Kit, A6L-503000-0405, Model No. 1003A, Serial: 044, Date: 9/68, Contract No. NAS 9-6100-74897.” Remaining inside are original repair materials including a patch, gasket seal replacements, cleaning and anti-fog pads, drying and polishing towels, and lubricating pads. In very good to fine condition, with some expected wear. Kits of this type were issued for the Apollo and Skylab missions to be used in the event minor repairs to the spacesuit became necessary. The signers of this example include not only six moonwalkers but the full crews of the Skylab SL-3 and SL-4 missions—a remarkable assemblage of pioneering astronauts on a decidedly unique format. Pre-certified Zarelli Space Authentication.
