    Description

    Apollo 1 Crew-Signed Color NASA Glossy Photo from the Personal Collection of Mission Pilot Roger Chaffee. A 10" x 8" photo (blank verso) with the red-letter photo ID number in the margin, "NASA S-66-30236". It pictures the astronauts posed in their flight suits at a table behind a model of the original CM-012 command module. It is boldly signed by each in black felt tip: "Ed White" (1930-1967), "Gus Grissom" (1926-1967), and "Roger Chaffee" (1935-1967). Originally designated AS-204, the first mission in the Apollo manned lunar landing program was scheduled for launch on February 21, 1967. A tragic fire during a "plugs-out" launch simulation on January 27, 1967, claimed the lives of the three astronauts aboard. Very desirable, coming directly from the family of one of the crew. Mrs. Chaffee has communicated with us that this is the last signed crew photo in her possession; there will be no more from this source. Pristine condition save for an inconsequential crease at upper right.

    Included with this photo is a signed letter of authenticity from Martha Chaffee, the widow of the late Roger Chaffee, attesting to its origination in her husband's treasured collection of signed NASA photographs.
