Large size photo, ready for display.Apollo 1 Crew-Signed Large Color Photo in Handsome Framed Display, with Full Letters of Authenticity from both Steve Zarelli and PSA/DNA. A color 13.25" x 10.5" (sight size) color NASA photo picturing the crew in flight suits seated at a table with an early Apollo spacecraft model, American and NASA flags at either side. It is signed neatly in black felt tip: "Ed White", "Gus Grissom", and "Roger Chaffee". This crew, meant to fly the first three-man American space mission, sadly perished in a launchpad test fire in January 1967. Grissom was, of course one of the original "Mercury Seven" astronauts and was the second American in space on MR-4 Liberty Bell, later also flying on the first Gemini mission. Ed White was in the second NASA astronaut group and flew on Gemini 4 where he performed America's first spacewalk. Roger Chaffee was in NASA's third group and was excitedly looking forward to his first space mission. Professionally matted and framed with an engraved plaque to an overall 20" x 18". This is the finest signed Apollo 1 signed display piece Heritage has ever offered and it should generate some fierce bidding. Don't miss out. Excellent.
Included with this lot are LOAs from Steve Zarelli (#190919-2107) and PSA/DNA (#AH02415).
