Item 4051 - Yuri Gagarin Signed Portfolio Catalog 538 (Oct 2018)

Back To Previous Page
(we are no longer accepting bids on this item)
Minimum Bid: $200.00
Sold Price: $296.45 (includes buyer's premium)


Leather zippered portfolio case, 14.75 x 10, embossed in red Cyrillic in the upper right corner (translated), “XXIII, Congress, CPSU,” and signed and inscribed in Cyrillic on the vinyl interior in blue ballpoint, “Nikolai Nikolaevich, Rodionov, In remembrance of our position in the 23rd Congress of the CPSU, with sincere respect, Gagarin, 6.4.66.” In fine condition, with some light rubbing and wear. Rodionov served as the first secretary of the Cheliabinsk oblast committee of the CPSU in 1965, holding that position until he became the USSR’s deputy minister of foreign affairs in 1970. An appealing and unique item given its unusual format and Gagarin’s atypically lengthy inscription.
