Description


Color satin-finish 20 x 16 photo of the Apollo 8 ‘Earthrise,’ signed in silver and gold ink by sixteen Apollo astronauts, most adding patriotic sentiments: “Walt Cunningham, ‘God Bless America,’ Apollo 7,” “Wally Schirra, ‘God bless America,’ Apollo 7,” “Frank Borman—Apollo 8 CDR,” “Rusty Schweickart, Apollo 9 LMP, God bless us all,” “Jim McDivitt, Apollo 9 CDR, America—a great place to live!,” “Buzz Aldrin, ‘God Bless America,’ Apollo XI,” “Michael Collins, All the Best,” “Alan Bean, Apollo 12, American skills helped accomplish this, Alan Bean,” “Richard Gordon, ‘God Bless America,’ Apollo XII,” “Fred Haise, ‘God Bless America,’ Apollo 13,” “James Lovell, God bless America, Apollo 8, 13,” “Edgar Mitchell, ‘God Bless America,’ Apollo 14,” “Dave Scott, Apollo 15 CDR, Globalization at its finest!,” “Al Worden—God bless the US & the UK, Apollo 15 CMP,” “God Bless America—First to the Moon, John Young, Apollo 16 CDR,” “Gene Cernan, Apollo XVII, ‘Only in America is the impossible possible,’” and “Gene Kranz, ‘Red, White, & Blue Flight.’” In fine condition, with some light creasing (noticeably to upper right corner). The consignor notes that this was originally signed only by Borman, and the other signatures were collected over the course of ten years. Alan Bean was the second to sign and as he looked at the image he discussed American pride in the space program; thus, the patriotic theme was born and continued by those who signed later. A unique compilation of outstanding, rarely seen inscriptions on an iconic oversized photograph. Pre-certified Zarelli Space Authentication.
