    Apollo 11: Three Houston Astrodome Extravaganza SRO Tickets, One Signed by Each Crewmember at the Event, with Statement of Provenance. Houston held a "welcome home" celebration for the Apollo 11 astronauts at the Astrodome on August 16, 1969, with an all-star entertainment line-up including Frank Sinatra, Bill Dana, Flip Wilson, and others. Offered here are three 3.5" x 1.375" orange printed tickets, one is signed on the front in black felt tip: "Buzz Aldrin". The other two are signed on the verso in ink: "Neil Armstrong" and "M Collins" respectively. These were obtained by a member of a high school band that was participating in the event; each signature was obtained in-person. Possibly a unique set. About fine overall.

    Included with this lot is a signed Statement of Provenance from the individual who obtained the signatures. It reads, in full: "In August, 1969, I was starting my senior year in high school at Westbury High. The band was invited to play at the event, so that is how I happened to be there. They gave a handful of those SRO tickets to each of us. My family did not want to go so I had extras. I'll never forget it. Frank Sinatra sang 'Fly Me to the Moon.' These tickets were given to band students from Westbury High School attending the event that day. I personally handed each ticket to one of the Astronauts and each one signed it in my presence."
