    Jack Swigert Large Signed Color Apollo 13 Launch Photograph, 10.75" x 13.75", matted to 15.5" x 19.25". Inscribed on upper mat "To Joe Garino-/ with deep appreciation for all your extra help./ Very best wishes/ Jack Swigert/ Apollo 13." The photo has faded a bit and there is soiling on the blank left portion of the mat. Apollo 13 patch affixed at lower right. The mission was aborted due to an explosion aboard the command module. It was Swigert who, after he saw a warning light accompanying the explosion, said, "Houston, we've had a problem here." Swigert was elected to Congress in 1982 but died a week before he was to be sworn in. Framed to 17.5" x 21.5". From the collection of renowned former physical trainer of the astronauts Joe Garino. This lot is accompanied by a signed certificate of authentication from Garino verifying its provenance.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
