Item 2343 - Gene Cernan Signed 'Astronaut Proof' Print Catalog 569 (Oct 2019)

Back To Previous Page
(we are no longer accepting bids on this item)
Minimum Bid: $200.00
Sold Price: $722.50 (includes buyer's premium)


Phenomenal limited edition color 19 x 13 'astronaut proof' print entitled 'The Last Words Ever Spoken…,' numbered 4/5, depicting Commander Gene Cernan holding the American flag on the lunar surface during the Apollo 17 mission, signed in the lower border in black felt tip by Cernan, who adds the final words ever spoken on the moon: "'And as we leave the Moon at Taurus-Littrow, we leave as we came…and God willing, as we shall return, with peace and hope for all mankind.'" Included with the print is a same-size off-white cardstock sheet used by Cernan to practice his script for the 'astronaut proof' print, with Cernan testing different ink and felt tip pens and writing five variations of the opening line, "And as we leave the Moon at Taurus-Littrow…" Rolled and in overall fine condition. Accompanied by two color certificates of authenticity prepared by David Frohman, with one featuring an image of Cernan holding the print. An exceptional limited edition print celebrating the final moon-landing mission, with Commander Cernan adding his full final words as spoken from the landing site of Apollo 17. Additionally, the print is augmented furthermore by the very rare presence of Cernan's 'practice' sheet, a fascinating and hugely desirable supplement to this already historic and uncommon poster.
