    From H. Ray Hubbard's collection

    Apollo 11: Lunar Module Flight Crew Notions Box Signed by the Apollo 11 Crew and Eight Others During Lunar Module Mission Simulator Training, Directly from the Collection of Lunar Module Mission Simulator Instructor H. Ray Hubbard. An 11.75" x 8.5" x 7.25" metal box with a cloth handle on one small side along with a drop down lid and large strips of Velcro on one large side for mounting. On another large side are eleven 3" x 1" labels applied, each with the black ink signature of an Apollo astronaut: "James Lovell", "Charles Conrad Jr", "Rusty Schweickart", "James A. McDivitt", "Alan Bean", "Fred Haise", "Gene Cernan", "Tom Stafford", "Neil Armstrong", "Buzz Aldrin", and "Michael Collins". From Hubbard's notes: "This whimsical painted box with racing strips was used by LM-5 crew members to hold small items for easy retrieval during training in the Lunar Module Mission Simulator. The signatures on top of the box are of crew members who used the box during training; Michael Collins signed the box as a guest, he did not use the box during training as he was the Command Module Pilot on Apollo 11. Due to anticipated VIP visitors, the box was replaced by a more professional looking one about a month before the launch of Apollo 11. As I recall, the new box was not as popular as the old one." An absolutely unique piece of memorabilia that would look awesome in your Space display. It appears that some astronaut set their cup of coffee in the box as there are some spillage stains, minor dings and scratches, overall very good.

    Captain Hershell Ray Hubbard, USAF, was an LMMS instructor at the Cape and also Staff Support at Houston as required. He has carefully preserved these items as a history of the preparations for this landmark flight and is now sharing them with the public.
