Set of ten commemorative covers with cachets honoring the Skylab Astronaut Space Suit Fit-Check, individually signed in blue or black ink by a Skylab astronaut, including: Jack Lousma, Bill Pogue, Ed Gibson, Alan Bean, William Lenoir, Joe Kerwin, Owen Garriott, Paul Weitz, and Jerry Carr (2). Each signed on the date the suit was fitted and stamped with name and suit number. In overall fine condition. Both Apollo and Skylab astronauts were fitted for space suits at ILC Industries in Dover, Delaware, with the latter program attending between the months of October and December, 1972. Given that only thirteen astronauts are known to have signed such covers, this assortment is a truly uncommon and impressive offer.
