    "Naval Aviation in Space" Limited Edition Lithograph (942 of 1000) Signed by Nine Naval Astronauts. A 22" x 29" print (sight size) of a watercolor collage by noted artist (and Naval aviator) Robert L. Rasmussen, with scenes depicting various periods of the American space program. The artist has signed "942/1000/ Bob Rasmussen" in pencil at right just beneath the image. The nine astronauts have each signed in pencil in the bottom margin, above their printed names, as follows (left to right, top row, then bottom): "Rick Hauck" (STS-7, STS-51-A, STS-26); "Alan Shepard" (Mercury 3, Apollo 14); "Neil Armstrong" (Gemini 8, Apollo 11); "Charles Conrad Jr." (1930-1999) (Gemini 5, Gemini 11, Apollo 12, Skylab 2); "Jack Lousma" (Skylab 3, STS-3); "John Glenn" (Mercury 6, STS-95); "Gene Cernan" (Gemini 9A, Apollo 10, Apollo 17); "James Lovell" (Gemini 7, Gemini 12, Apollo 8, Apollo 13); and "Wally Schirra" (1923-2007) (Mercury 8, Gemini 6A, Apollo 7). These prints were all signed during an event at the Naval Aviation Museum in 1989 to raise funds for the museum. A rare and desirable combination of signatures including the first American in space, the first American to orbit the Earth, the first man to walk on the moon, and also the last man to do so. Handsomely double-matted and framed to an overall 29" x 36", ready for your office or den. Excellent condition.

    Included with this lot is a numbered Certificate of Authenticity from the issuing National Museum of Naval Aviation.
