    Buzz Aldrin Signed Large Korean War "MIG Claims" Photo Originally from His Personal Collection. A 20" x 16" B&W photo mounted on a mat board of Aldrin and two fellow Korean War pilots in front of a sign titled "MIG CLAIMS" with numbers posted for "Destroyed", "Probably Destroyed", "Damaged", and "Pending Film". It is signed boldly in blue felt tip. Aldrin was in the 51st Fighter Wing where he flew F-86 Sabres in sixty-six combat missions defending South Korea from the Communist forces in the North. His wing set a record with sixty-one "kills" and fifty-seven grounded during one month of combat. Aldrin shot down two personally and was awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross. We have never offered this photo signed before- quite rare, especially from his collection. Light water damage at upper right edge, otherwise fine.

    A Certificate of Authenticity will accompany this lot.
