    "...I discontinued autographing them six or seven years ago."

    Neil Armstrong Typed Letter Signed Regarding the Signing of Philatelic Items. A one page letter on University of Cincinnati letterhead, 8" x 11", September 23, 1977, Cincinnati, Ohio, to a collector in England in answer to an autograph request. A statement of his policies regarding covers. It reads, in full: "Because of the commercial negotiability of signed commemorative and first-day covers, I discontinued autographing them six or seven years ago. I recognize that all other autographs, which I freely provide, are also sold and traded lending an air of inconsistency to my position, but one must draw the line somewhere. I appreciate your genuine need for fund sources, but have no particular recommendations in that regard. I do appreciate the honor inherent in your request." Signed: "Neil Armstrong". A COA from The Inkwell Autograph Gallery is included. Extremely fine condition. From the Steven R. Belasco Collection of Space Memorabilia.
