    Buzz Aldrin, Charles Conrad, Alan Bean, Alan Shepard, Edgar Mitchell, Charlie Duke

    Alan Shepard's Moon Shot Book Signed by Thirteen Astronauts including Six Moonwalkers. The Inside Story of America's Race to the Moon. (Atlanta: Turner Publishing Company, 1994). Hardbound with dust jacket, first edition, first printing, 383 pages, illustrated. The page proceeding the title page bears the following felt tip signatures: "Alexei Leonov/ Voskhod-2/ Soyz Apollo", "Rusty Schweickart/ Apollo 9 4 Sept 04", "Edgar Mitchell/ Apollo 14/ 6th Moonwalker", "Richard Gordon/ CMP Apollo XII/ 6-27-99", "Alan Bean/ LMP Apollo XII/ 6-27-99", and "Charlie Duke/ Apollo 16/ 10th Moonwalker/ 9-04-04". The title page is signed: "Walt Cunningham/ 9-4-04 Apollo 7", "Buzz Aldrin" (who has signed a second time later in the book), "Gordon Cooper", "Alan Shepard", "Scott Carpenter/ 4 September/ 2004/ Aurora 7", "Charles Conrad Jr/ 7-27-'99/ Apollo XII", and "Wally Schirra/ Apollo 7/ 4 Sept 04". Many of the astronauts have added additional comments such as their missions. The three Apollo 12 crewmember signatures were obtained at an event in June 1999 and there are three holograph authenticity stickers on the pages from Autograph Central. Pete Conrad died only a few days later on July 8th. Several of the autographs were obtained on September 4, 2004, in Burbank at a U.A.C.C. show. The signatories include four of the original Mercury Seven astronauts, the first person to walk in space, and seven who flew to the moon. A unique and very desirable item with autographs painstakingly gathered at various in-person meetings over the course of several years. There is room on the title page spread for additional signatures. Several additional astronauts will be appearing at Space VII in Tucson June 9-12, 2016. Very fine.
