    Autograph Note Signed by George H. W. Bush as United Nations Ambassador with Apollo 14 Patch. One page, two-sided, written on Bush's engraved Ambassadorial note card, New York, November 19, 1971. Apollo 14 was the first mission to broadcast color television pictures from the surface of the moon which displayed Shepard's golf prowess using the head of a Wilson six-iron attached to a lunar sample scoop handle. Seven months after the Apollo 14 mission, U.N. Ambassador Bush wrote this short note to Mr. Josten, in part: "When you are in N.Y. City come by our office. Adm. Shepard gave us one of the arm patches they carried to the moon... My secretary has it for you." Penned in heavy black felt-tip, and signed, "Best George B." Faint soiling at upper left corner, but generally fine. Accompanied by the handsome oval Apollo 14 patch (approximately 4.75 x 4.25"), produced by the Lion Brothers and featuring their hidden "14" hallmark (upside-down on lunar surface, near point of star). Patch is spotless and perfect - an excellent addition to any space patch collection.
