    Apollo 1 Crew: Signatures of Gus Grissom, Edward White II, Roger Chaffee, and Rusty Schweickart (Backup Pilot) Obtained in Las Vegas in April 1966. A 7.5" x 4" card (the verso of a Copa Room table tent card) signed in various inks, as follows: "Gus Grissom", "Ed White", "Rusty Schweickart", and "Roger B. Chaffee". On the verso is the notation: "Dino Martin Show/ Sands Hotel/ Las Vegas/ Nevada". Included is a handwritten note from the original owner stating that "These three men sat next to us at the Sands Hotel, Las Vegas, Nev. In 1966. They were pioneers in the space exploration of our country". An interesting piece with excellent provenance. Note that the backup crew for Apollo 1 was changed in December 1966 from the Apollo 9 crew to the Apollo 7 crew. Fine.

    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.
