    Description

    Mercury Seven Astronauts: Rare McDonnell "Mercury Spacecraft" Lithograph Signed by All. An 8.5" x 17.5" (sight size) color image of the Mercury capsule with the escape tower atop, matted and framed to an overall 14.5" x 26.5". All seven of NASA's Group One astronauts have neatly signed in a row to the right of the capsule area as follows: "Gordon Cooper", "Scott Carpenter", "W M Schirra Jr", "Alan B. Shepard, Jr", "J H Glenn, Jr", "Gus Grissom", and "D K Slayton". We have sold two similar items previously (each for more than $11,000) signed by only the six astronauts that actually flew in Project Mercury. We feel this to be more rare and desirable. Great display item. Light areas of toning at top and bottom of mat (could easily be re-matted). The print itself is excellent. From the personal collection of Gemini Program Office special assistant and longtime NASA employee, Paul M. Sturtevant.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
