Limited edition color 19 x 13 print entitled “The Last Words Ever Spoken…,” numbered 6/45, bearing an image of Cernan holding the American flag on the lunar surface and a printed quotation of his last words spoken on the moon, signed below the image in black felt tip, with Cernan writing out the final lunar words: “‘And as we leave the Moon at Taurus-Littrow, we leave as we came…and God willing, as we shall return, with peace and hope for all mankind,’ Gene Cernan.” Rolled and in fine condition, with a few trivial creases. Accompanied by a photo of Cernan holding the print. In the years since leaving the moon, Cernan has rarely inscribed this quote in full, and as such few examples exist. This copy is one of only 45 examples that were created, and one of only 36 authorized for sale to collectors by Cernan. An extremely rare and desirable Apollo 17 print.
