    Rare Texas Lone Star Flag Flown on Man's First Trip to the Moon, Signed and Certified by Lovell.

    Apollo 8 Flown Texas Flag Signed by and from the Personal Collection of Mission Command Module Pilot James Lovell. A rare and seldom-offered space collectible- a flag from Texas, the home to Apollo's Mission Control, that accompanied Lovell, William Anders, and Frank Borman on the first manned voyage to another celestial body. This 5.5" x 3.75" silk flag is signed on the red stripe, "Flown on board Apollo 8/ James Lovell". This world watched this mission in amazement: their Christmas Eve television broadcast from lunar orbit was the most watched TV program to that time and TIME Magazine named the three crewmembers their "Men of the Year" for 1968. Don't let this opportunity to own such an important and well-documented Apollo 8 flown item pass you by. Excellent condition.

    This lot includes a signed Letter of Authenticity from Lovell stating, "[This item] was flown on the first journey to the moon on December 21, 1968 on board the Apollo 8 spacecraft."
