Description


Desirable pairing of Armstrong-signed items: a TLS, one page, 6.75 x 9, NASA letterhead, December 4, 1962. Letter to Raymond W. Schneider, in full: "Your letter of congratulations is most appreciated, for to know that people not known to us personally are interested in our recent appointments as astronaut trainees makes us aware of their enthusiasm about the manned space flight program. Please accept the enclosed autographed item in appreciation of your interest." Included is a vintage glossy 6.25 x 9 photo of Armstrong wearing a suit and posing between the NASA logo and American flag, signed over his arm in black ink. Both are triple-matted and framed to an overall size of 20.25 x 14.5. In overall fine condition, with significant signature contrast to photograph. Three months after performing his final X-15 test flight, Armstrong received a phone call from Deke Slayton asking him to join the second group of NASA astronauts on September 13, 1962. Armstrong immediately agreed and became one of two civilian pilots selected to the 'New Nine,' the other being Elliot See. A magnificent offering dating only three months after Armstrong's entrance into NASA.
