    Apollo 9 Crew-Signed White Spacesuit Color Photo and Jack Benny Congratulatory Telegram Originally from the Personal Collection of Jim McDivitt, with Novaspace COA. Two great items, as follows.
    Photo: A 10" x 8" silk finish photo signed boldly in black felt tip by all three: "Jim McDivitt/ A-9", "Dave Scott/ Apollo 9 CMP", and "Rusty Schweickart/ Apollo 9 LMP". Very desirable as signed. Tape residue on verso, excellent.
    Telegram: An 8.5" x 8.25" telegram date-stamped by the MSC mail room on March 15, 1969. Sent by the legendary comedian, it reads in part: "Congratulations, I was at Cape Kennedy when you blasted off. And I wanted to see you in person when you returned. But they wouldn't let me because they thought I was too old to be in a life raft..." Included with it is a COA from the Jim McDivitt Garage Sale. Very good.

    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.
