Magnificent official vintage color glossy 8 x 10 red-numbered NASA photo of Fred Haise posing with a model of an Apollo spacecraft, signed and inscribed in black felt tip to Apollo 13 CMP Jack Swigert, "To Jack—my friend, fellow astronaut, and Apollo 13 crewman—All our dreams and hopes have not always come true, but what has transpired has been certainly interesting and enjoyable most of the time! May we have many more years of friendship and satisfaction working together. Your friend, Freddo.” Reverse bears "A Kodak Paper" watermarks. In fine condition. Accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Swigert’s sister, Virginia, in part: “I certify that this Fred Haise 8″ x 10″ Signed Photo—Inscribed to Fellow Apollo 13 Astronaut Jack Swigert—is from Jack Swigert's personal collection.” Three days before launch, Swigert became the command module pilot for the ill-fated Apollo 13 mission when he replaced original CMP Ken Mattingly. A wonderfully inscribed photo with great associative content concerning NASA’s most courageous rescue mission.
