Remarkable color vintage glossy 13.25 x 10.75 photo of Jim Irwin saluting the American flag on the lunar surface during Apollo 15, affixed to its original 20 x 16 mount, signed and inscribed on the mount in black felt tip, "To Ron Evans, with all the best from 15 and great expectations for 17. Feb. 7, 1972, Dave Scott,” "Al Worden," and "Jim Irwin." In fine condition. Accompanied by a certificate of authenticity from the Novaspace 'Ron Evans Garage Sale,' signed by his wife Janet Evans. Irwin, Worden, and Evans were all members of NASA Astronaut Group 5, selected in 1966. Evans would go on to be Command Module Pilot for Apollo 17, the last manned lunar mission, in December 1972. A wonderful association piece from the collection of an Apollo astronaut.
