TLS signed “Jack,” one page, 8.5 x 11, personal letterhead, May 10, 1973. Letter to former Green Bay Packer quarterback Bart Starr, in full: "While I sent my acceptance in separately, I did want to express my appreciation to you personally for your kind invitation. Being an old and very little-known college guard, I can't think of a more worthy person or a more worthy cause to honor. Since you asked, there are some other astronauts among the group, in addition to Al Shepard, who are avid golfers—Charles M. (Charlie) Duke of Apollo 16 and Eugene (Geno) Cernan of Apollo 17. If you wanted to send them an invitation, address it to the Astronaut Office, Johnson Space Center, Houston, Texas 77058. I'll be happy to help out in any way I can. I'll be in touch with arrival plans at a later date. But, even though as a golfer I'd make a good astronaut, I'm looking forward to it and meeting you." In fine condition. Swigert played right guard on the University of Colorado football team and was referred to by his teammates as 'Big Swig.'
