    Rare "red number" example

    Gemini 4: Ed White II Signed Original NASA "Red Number" EVA Color Photo. A 10" x 8" glossy photo (S-65-30431) of the desirable red number variety with "A Kodak Paper" watermark and purple ink caption on the verso. It is beautifully signed in black ink: "Edward H. White II/ 3 June '65". This was America's first spacewalk. White was scheduled to fly in Apollo 1 on February 21, 1967, but a tragic fire during a "plugs-out" launch simulation on January 27, 1967, claimed the lives of White and his crewmates Gus Grissom and Roger Chaffee. We can't image a more desirable example of this photo, one of the most iconic images of the space program. Minor surface flaws, nothing detracting though. Very fine. From the Collection of Dr. Bruce Wayne Overton.

    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.
