    Description

    The finest Mercury Seven signed presentation we've ever offered.

    "Mercury Seven" NASA Astronaut Group One Large Color Photo Signed by All on the Mat. This is an amazing item- a 13.5" x 10.5" color photo of seven modern heroes, the original American astronaut corps, shown in their flight suits in front of an Air Force F-102 jet. This has been mounted to a 20" x 16" mat to which each astronaut has affixed his signature beneath his respective photo: "Scott Carpenter", "Gordon Cooper" (1927-2004), "J H Glenn, Jr.", "Gus Grissom" (1926-1967), "W M Schirra Jr" (1923-2007), "Alan B Shepard, Jr" (1923-1998), and "D K Slayton" (1924-1993). This has tremendous display appeal and historical significance and is rarely seen in this size and format. Appropriate for even the most advanced space collections. Fine condition with some toning and light staining in the outside margin areas. One light crease at the bottom runs up through the Cooper signature and the photo has some minor waviness at the bottom from mounting. Proper framing would essentially mitigate these insignificant flaws.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
