    "Gemini Spacecraft": Rare McDonnell Lithograph Signed by Eleven Astronauts Who Flew in Project Gemini, in a Framed Display. A lithographed color photograph of the Gemini spacecraft with the equipment module attached, 12" x 18.5" in size. The caption printed at the bottom reads: "GEMINI SPACECRAFT/ Designed and built by MCDONNELL, St. Louis/ for the National Aeronautics and Space Administration". Along the left side of the image, five astronauts have signed (top to bottom): "Gus Grissom", "Frank Borman", "Charles Conrad Jr", "Neil Armstrong", and "Michael Collins". On the right side, six have signed: "James Lovell", "John Young", "Edward H White II", "Wally Schirra", "R. F. Gordon Jr", and "Dave Scott". This is the first of these we've offered with the Grissom and White signatures. It also differs in that this image is a photograph; in others we have seen, the image was a very similar artist's rendering. Of the remaining five astronauts who flew on Gemini, there are four that could possibly be added through shows and/or private signings: James McDivitt, Tom Stafford, Gene Cernan, and Buzz Aldrin. This rare and possibly unique signed print is beautifully and archivally framed under UF3 Plexiglas to an overall size of 21" x 18". Excellent with bold signatures.

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
