    Space Shuttle Challenger (STS-6) Crew-Signed Photo Montage Originally from the Personal Collection of Mission Commander Paul Weitz, Signed and Certified, with Handwritten LOA. STS-6 was the sixth overall flight in the Space Shuttle program and the first of ten flights for the Challenger. Weitz commanded a crew of four on the Earth orbital mission, April 4-9, 1983. This handsome grouping of three color photos is mounted to a blue mat, sight size 19.5" x 15.5", and framed to an overall 22.5" x 18.5". Included is an 8.25" x 12.75" photo of the launch from Kennedy Space Center, an 8.25" x 6.25" photo of the landing at Edwards Air Force Base, and an 8.25" x 6.25" crew photo, signed: "Paul Weitz", "Karol 'Bo' Bobko", "Don Peterson", and "Story Musgrave". Weitz has written this on the back of the frame: "From my personal collection/ Paul Weitz/ CDR, STS-6". Excellent. From the Daniel J. King Collection.

    Included with this lot is a handwritten and signed letter of authenticity from Paul Weitz on his personal letterhead, stating: "To whom it may concern- I hereby certify that this photo montage was assembled shortly after our STS-6 mission, April 4-9, 1983 which was the first flight of the Orbiter 'Challenger'. It bears the genuine signatures of all the crewmembers. It is from my personal collection of artifacts from the mission, and has been in my personal possession ever since."
