Description


Official color glossy 10 x 8 NASA photo of the original Apollo 13 prime crew, signed and inscribed in black felt tip to Padleader Guenter Wendt by Fred Haise, "Best Wishes to Guenter—this is an extra picture for an old, cherished friend, Freddo," "James Lovell," and "Ken Mattingly." Reverse bears “A Kodak Paper” watermarks and purple NASA caption text. In fine condition, with dampstaining to reverse (not at all affecting the image or signatures). Mattingly was replaced by Jack Swigert three days prior to launch, when it was discovered that backup LMP Charlie Duke had contracted rubella, exposing both the prime and backup crews. Mattingly, who had never caught rubella as a child, was the only member not immune. A fantastic example inscribed to a notable NASA figure. From The Bill Lende Collection.
