    Mercury Seven Astronauts NASA Photo Signed by All! A B&W 10" x 8" official NASA photo of the seven original men chosen in April of 1959 to become astronauts in the American space program. They are posed in their flight suits in front of an Air Force F-106 and all have signed above their respective images in various black and blue inks as follows (from left): "M. Scott Carpenter", "Leroy G. Cooper, Jr" (1927-2004), "J. H. Glenn Jr", "Virgil I. Grissom" (1926-1967), "Walter M. Schirra Jr", "Alan b. Shepard Jr" (1923-1998), and "Donald K. Slayton" (1924-1993). Note the rare early forms of some of the signatures. The photograph is worn at the edges and visibly creased but the image remains bright and the signatures are all clear. This is a seldom offered space collector's "dream piece." Don't let it pass you by.

    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.
