    Description

    Alan Bean Signed Large Apollo 12 Lunar Surface Color Photo with Lengthy John F. Kennedy Quote. A 20" x 16" silk finish photo on Kodak Endura paper of Bean carrying the ALSEP package. In the wide lower border he has written in black felt tip:

    "We choose to go to the moon. We choose to go to the moon in this decade and do the other things,/ not because they are easy, but because they are hard, because that goal will serve to organize/ and measure the best of our energies and skills, because that challenge is one that we are willing/ to accept, one we are unwilling to postpone, and one which we intend to win, and the others, too./ President John F. Kennedy - September 12, 1962/ Alan LaVern Bean Apollo 12 Lunar Module Pilot November 19-20, 1969"

    This is a portion of the speech that JFK made at Rice Stadium in Houston. Unique presentation in our experience, signed with full name. Excellent.
