(we are no longer accepting bids on this item)
Minimum Bid: $200.00
Sold Price: $2,212.35 (includes buyer's premium)


Official NASA Kennedy Space Center launch viewing pass for Apollo 11 featuring the mission insignia, no. 6414, 5 x 3, signed on the front in black felt tip, "Ed Gibson, Skylab III, Apollo 12, Capcom," and signed vertically on the reverse in blue ballpoint, "C. A. Lindbergh." In fine condition. At 9:32 a.m. on July 16, 1969, the crew of Apollo 11 launched from Launch Complex 39A at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida. Blue viewing passes were generally reserved for high-level VIPs, while similar passes with gray backgrounds were issued for general use. This pass originates from the private collection of Ed Gibson and was issued to his wife Julie during the launch. NASA had more than 20,000 VIP guests, including senators, congressmen, ambassadors, military, and even actors such as Johnny Carson. Also in attendance as a personal guest of Commander Neil Armstrong was Lindbergh, who watched the liftoff alongside Gemini and Apollo 8 astronaut James Lovell. A truly unique format signed by a NASA astronaut and one of aviation's foremost pioneers.
