    Apollo "Ladders" Print Signed by Twenty-Seven Astronauts. A 16" x 20" color lithograph of a painting by Mitchell Jamieson (NASA Space Art-61) captioned: "A launch crew works late into the night preparing the Saturn rocket for lift-off. The fins of the rocket's boattail can be seen protruding from the clam-shell covering." It has been signed around all four wide margins in bold black felt tip by twenty-seven Apollo and Skylab astronauts. From top left, clockwise: "Joe Kerwin/ Science Pilot, SL I", "Owen Garriott/ SPT, Skylab-II", "Bill Pogue/ PLT SL-4", "Jim McDivitt Apollo 9 CDR", "John Young/ Apollo 16 CDR", "Gene Cernan/ Apollo X-XVII", "Jack Lousma/ SL-II, STS-3", "Paul Weitz/ PLT.

There's not likely another one of these available. Very fine.

    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.
