    All members of Group Three as selected in October 1963

    NASA Astronaut Group Three: Color Photo Signed by All Fourteen, in Framed Display, with Novaspace COA. A 13.25" x 8.25" photo of this group, posed in business suits seated at and standing behind a table. Each has neatly signed above or below their image in black ink: "Michael Collins", "Walter Cunningham", "Donn Eisele", "Ted Freeman", "Dick Gordon", "Rusty Schweickart", "Dave Scott", "C Williams"/ "Buzz Aldrin", "Bill Anders", "Charlie Bassett", "Alan L Bean", "Gene Cernan", and "Roger Chaffee". A particularly tough group to assemble as four of these men died before they could ever fly into space. Theodore Freeman (1964), Charles Bassett (1966), and Clifton Williams (1967) all were killed in plane crashes and Roger Chaffee (1967) perished in the tragic Apollo 1 fire. Elegantly custom double matted in suede and framed to an overall 21.5" x 20.5" with Gemini, NASA, and Apollo embroidered patches. Just the slightest amount of fading on the photo though the signatures are all bold and dark, overall excellent. From the Collection of Dr. Bruce Wayne Overton.

    Of these fourteen heroes, four walked on the moon (including the last), and three others flew to the moon. They represent eighteen space missions in total across the Gemini, Apollo, and Skylab programs.

    Included with this lot is a Certificate of Authenticity from Novaspace stating, in full: "I certify that the signatures of The 14 group III astronauts are authentic and guaranteed to have been signed in person".

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
