    PROJECT MERCURY

    The men with the "Right Stuff"

    Mercury Seven Astronauts: Photo Signed by All. A 10" x 8" sepia-toned photo picturing the first seven astronauts chosen by NASA for their Man in Space project. This photo, showing the astronauts inspecting a Mercury Atlas model, was one of a series of photos taken April 30, 1959, at Langley Research Center. All seven of these brave men, who laid the groundwork for America's space program, have signed on the wide lower margin with early forms of their signatures: "Alan B Shepard Jr.", "Walter M. Schirra Jr.", "John H. Glenn, Jr.", "Virgil I. Grissom", "M. Scott Carpenter", "Donald K. Slayton", and "Leroy G. Cooper, Jr". An extremely desirable item and a cornerstone for any serious collection of astronaut autographs. This is as nice an example as you could hope to find. The signatures exhibit NO fading and the photo is strong with great contrast. Very fine.
