(we are no longer accepting bids on this item)
Minimum Bid: $500.00
Sold Price: $4,560.68 (includes buyer's premium)


Tom Stafford’s flown 9 x 9 swatch of Beta cloth carried into space on Apollo 10, bearing a 3 x 3.25 mission emblem in the center, signed around the emblem in black felt tip by the prime crew, “Tom Stafford,” “John Young,” and “Gene Cernan.” In overall fine condition. Accompanied by a handwritten letter of provenance from Stafford to Max Ary of the Kansas Cosmosphere and Discovery Center, dated September 20, 1983, in full: "Enclosed are 3 Beta cloth patches that were flown on Apollo X. I recently had both John Young and Gene Cernan sign them. I thought that you might like to have two personally, and one for the Cosmosphere. Thanks again for all your great help in getting our museum going and for your help to the country in preserving space artifacts." Also accompanied by the original mailing envelope. A tremendous flown piece from the important ‘dress rehearsal’ for the Apollo 11 moon landing, made all the more significant given its connection to the famed Cosmosphere Space Museum.
