    APOLLO

    Apollo 1 Crew, Neil Armstrong, Bill Anders, Charles Conrad, and Dick Gordon Signatures on Single Sheet. A rare and unique grouping: a 7" x 5" sheet of paper with handwritten provenance at the top: "These autographs were obtained at the Apollo Saturn 202 Launch 8/25/66". The following signatures are all bold in black ink: "Roger B Chaffee", "Dick Gordon", "Gus Grissom", "Bill Anders", "Ed White", "Neil Armstrong", and "Charles Conrad Jr". Chaffee, Grissom, and White were intended to be the first manned Apollo crew until their tragic deaths in a launch pad test in January 1967. Individually, Grissom had been the second American in space and White was the first American space walker. Anders was on board Apollo 8, the first manned trip to the moon. Armstrong, of course, was the first man to walk on the moon and Conrad was the third. Gordon was aboard Apollo 12 as CSM. An amazing group of history-makers. Lightly toned and one minor stain affecting the Conrad signature. Overall fine.
