    Commander John Young celebrates the lower gravity while saluting his country's flag on the moon.

    Apollo 16 Large Color Photo Directly from the Personal Collection of Mission Commander John Young, Signed and Certified. A 13.75" x 10.75" glossy photo picturing Young on the surface of the moon next to the U.S. flag, the Lunar Module Orion, and the Lunar Roving Vehicle; he is leaping into the "air" as he salutes the flag. He has signed in a dark area at upper right using a silver felt tip pen: "From My Personal Collection/ John W. Young". The photo is laid down to a 20" x 16" white mat, ready for framing. Written on the back in an unknown hand is the image number: "AS16-113-18339". A stunning and dramatic photo in excellent condition.

    From Apollo 13 through Apollo 17, the mission commander's spacesuit had red stripes at the helmet, arms, and legs known as "Commander's Stripes." This made it easier to identify the crewmembers later in the photo labs on Earth.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
