    Apollo 1 Crew: Individually-Signed Gemini Launch Covers of Gus Grissom and Ed White. Philatelic covers, as follows.
    Grissom: Cover with four stamps and two cancellations- one from Houston on July 17, 1962, the other a hand cancel from Cape Canaveral on March 23, 1965, the date of his Gemini 3 mission. "Virgil I Grissom" signature is affected by one cancellation. Fine.
    White: A cover similar to the above but this has three cancellations- one from Houston on December 4, 1962, the other two are hand cancels from Cape Canaveral on June 3 and June 7, 1965, the launch and splashdown dates of Gemini 4. Signed: "Edward H. White II/ Capt USAF". Uncommon signature form. Very good.

    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.
