DescriptionJohn Glenn Signed STS-95 (Discovery) Orange Spacesuit Color Photo and Launch Cover. In 1998 John Glenn became the oldest person to fly in space (age 77) and the only one to fly in both the Mercury and Shuttle programs. As follows.
(1) An 8" x 10" silk finish photo on Fujicolor Crystal Archive paper, posed next to the American flag, hand resting on his helmet, with a Space Shuttle model in the background. Signed boldly in black felt tip: "John Glenn", not inscribed as often seen. A few minor creases, fine.
(2) A philatelic cover with color cachet bearing a "John Glenn Returns to Space" souvenir cancellation at Kennedy Space Center on launch day of October 29, 1988. Signed as above. Excellent.
