    Description

    Neil Armstrong Signed Time Magazine Cover "Neil Armstrong". The July 25, 1969, cover of Time, titled "Man On The Moon," pictures an artist's rendition of Armstrong preparing to plant the American flag on the lunar surface. Apollo 11 had landed on the Moon on July 20, 1969. The cover story inside the magazine (complete magazine not present) began: "The ghostly, white-clad figure slowly descended the ladder. Having reached the bottom rung, he lowered himself into the bowl-shaped footpad of Eagle, the spindly lunar module of Apollo 11. Then he extended his left foot, cautiously, tentatively, as if testing water in a pool-and, in fact, testing a wholly new environment for man. That groping foot, encased in a heavy multi-layered boot (size 9½B), would remain indelible in the minds of millions who watched it on TV, and a symbol of man's determination to step-and forever keep stepping-toward the unknown." Clean cover without an address label, with two words written in an unknown hand at the top red margin, but not detracting from its appearance. Cover measures 8" x 10.75", matted and framed to 12" x 15".
