    Frank Borman Typed Letter Signed Regarding Use of Apollo 8 for Commercial Purposes. One page, personal letterhead, 8.5" x 11", July 27, 1999, Fairacres, NM, to an autograph dealer. It reads, in full: "Wally Schirra sent me the letter you sent him regarding autographs. I was quite surprised and disturbed that you have used the name 'Apollo 8' for commercial purposes. You have absolutely no connection with Apollo 8 and I have never given autographs to you or anyone else for personal gain. You are obviously giving the public a false impression of your business association. If you have not stopped using the name of Apollo 8 by the end of August, I will use every means legally to force you to drop it." Signed: "Frank Borman". Very fine condition. From the Steven R. Belasco Collection of Space Memorabilia.
