    Mercury Seven Astronauts and "Shorty" Powers: Signatures on a Sheet with National Aeronautic Association Logo. Powers, NASA's first public affairs officer, was often called the "eighth astronaut" so it's fitting that his signature is added to the bottom of this 5.25" x 7.25" (sight size) page. Matted to an overall 20" x 11" with a B&W photo showing America's first astronauts casually posed in front of two space capsules. Signed as follows (top to bottom): "D K Slayton", "Gordon Cooper", "J H Glenn Jr", "Gus Grissom", "Alan Shepard", "W M Schirra Jr", "Scott Carpenter", and "Shorty Powers". The photo has a caption glued on giving the astronauts' names. The signed sheet is lightly but evenly toned. A great set of signatures. Fine condition.
