    "Failure is not an option"

    Apollo 13: Photos Signed by Lovell, Kranz, and Liebergot. No one who was alive during that time (or who has seen the movie) will ever forget the Apollo 13 disaster; the whole world was watching, praying, and hoping that the three brave astronauts would make it back to earth alive. It was a team effort that accomplished that goal and here we offer signed photos of three of the key people involved in getting Apollo 13 home safely.
    James Lovell: An 8" x 10" white spacesuit color photo signed: "James Lovell". Mounted to another page, very fine. LOA from JSA included.
    Gene Kranz: The flight director. A 14" x 11" B&W silk-finish photo of him at his Mission Control console, signed boldly in blue felt tip: "'Failure is not an option!'/ Gene Kranz/ White Flight". Excellent.
    Sy Liebergot and Gene Kranz: A 10" x 8" B&W silk-finish photo of the crippled Apollo 13 service module after it's separation from the command module. Signed by both: "We may have/ had an/ Instrumentation/ Problem, Flight!/ 4-13-70/ Sy Liebergot/ Apollo 13 EECOM" and "Gene Kranz". Excellent.
