    Description

    All members of Group One as selected in April 1959

    NASA Astronaut Group One: "Mercury Seven" Photo Signed by All. A 10" x 8" matte finish B&W photo picturing the first seven astronauts chosen by NASA for their Man in Space project. This photo shows the astronauts, in business suits, inspecting a Mercury Atlas model and was taken at Langley Research Center in Virginia. All seven of these men with the "Right Stuff" have signed with the earliest forms of their signatures: "Alan B Shepard J", "Walter M. Schirra Jr", "John H. Glenn, Jr.", "Virgil I. Grissom", "M. Scott Carpenter", "Donald K. Slayton", and "Leroy G. Cooper, Jr.". The inscription at the top right is by Scott Carpenter: "Merry Christmas to Doris/ from the Mercury Astronauts". A sought-after item for any collection of space autographs. Generally fine condition with minor expected "silvering" and some creasing at the right edge that affects the inscription and the Glenn signature just a bit. The Grissom and Schirra signatures are lighter than the others. Overall fine. From the Collection of Dr. Bruce Wayne Overton.
