Superb color 3.5 x 5.5 postcard of the Apollo 11 liftoff, signed in blue felt tip by Neil Armstrong and in black felt tip by Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins. The fantastic image showing the moment of ignition (S69-39962) was captured from a camera mounted on the mobile launch tower, at 9:32 a.m. (EDT), July 16, 1969, as the 363-feet tall Apollo 11 spacecraft was launched from Pad A, Launch Complex 39, Kennedy Space Center (KSC). It bears a Skylab postage stamp on the reverse, postmarked at the Kennedy Space Center on the fifth anniversary of the Apollo 11 launch, July 16, 1974. In very good to fine condition, with creasing to the top half of the card which passes through Aldrin's first name and somewhat irregular ink adhesion.
