    These Seven Men had "The Right Stuff"

    "Mercury Seven" Astronauts Individually Signed Color Portrait Photos. A goal of many space collectors is to assemble a set of autographs of the original group of NASA astronauts. It would be difficult to locate a better set than this one. Each of these American heroes has signed an early NASA color portrait print, as follows:
    "M. Scott Carpenter": business suit pose, mounted on cardstock and trimmed to 7.5" x 9.75".
    "Gordon Cooper": (1927-2004) business suit pose, mounted on cardstock, untrimmed, 8" x 10".
    "J H Glenn, Jr": business suit pose, unmounted, untrimmed, 8" x 10".
    "Virgil I Grissom": (1926-1967) business suit pose, mounted to cardstock and trimmed to 7.625" x 9.75".
    "W M Schirra": (1923-2007) space suit pose, mounted to cardstock, untrimmed, 8" x 10".
    "Alan B. Shepard Jr": (1923-1998) business suit pose, mounted to cardstock, trimmed to 7.5" x 9.75".
    "D K Slayton": (1924-1993) business suit pose, mounted to cardstock, trimmed to 7.625" x 9.75".
