    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.
