    Description

    Apollo 17 Crew-Signed Launch Cover with Original Robert T. McCall Painting of Harrison Schmitt on the Verso. This 6.5" x 3.625" cover is postmarked with a pictorial cancellation from Kennedy Space Center, Florida, December 7, 1972 (launch date), and bears a U.S. 8ยข flag definitive stamp. The cachet bears the mission insignia in bright colors as well as the cute "space mouse" art. It is signed on the front around the insignia: "Ron Evans/ Apollo 17", "Jack Schmitt", and "Gene Cernan". On the verso is an excellent pen, ink, and paint drawing by master space artist Robert T. McCall; it depicts astronaut Schmitt standing next to the Lunar Roving Vehicle on the moon's surface with a "rising" Earth in the background and fills the entire back surface. It is signed in the lower right corner "Robert T. McCall". Apollo 17 was man's last landing on the lunar surface. Very fine condition.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
