Minimum Bid: $500.00
Sold Price: $13,133.23 (includes buyer's premium)


Exceptional vintage matte-finish 10 x 8 photo of the Mercury 7 astronauts posing with a model rocket, signed in the lower border in ballpoint and fountain pen by all seven astronauts using their full names: "Alan B. Shepard, Jr.," "Walter M. Schirra, Jr.," "John H. Glenn, Jr.," "Virgil I. Grissom," "M. Scott Carpenter," "Donald K. Slayton," and "Leroy S. Cooper, Jr." The reverse is signed in ballpoint by Schirra, "Original photo from my personal collection—Wally Schirra." In very fine condition. Selected as part of the Mercury 7 in 1959, Schirra made America's third orbital spaceflight during his Mercury-Atlas 8 mission in October 1962. As a fully signed photograph of America's first astronaut cohort from the collection of one of its members, this is an absolutely spectacular example.
