    Description

    Gemini 6A & Gemini 7 Rendezvous: Individually-Signed Typed Quotations Regarding the Mission. Four identical 8.5" x 11" plain sheets with the following typed text:

    "Rendezvous in Space.

    "History was made with the following words --the first face to face meeting of the two manned spacecrafts. The flight statistics made this feat almost unbelievable: Four men whirling around the earth 185 miles up in two spacecrafts 72 inches apart at a speed of 17,500 miles an hour.

    'There seems to be a lot of traffic up here,' said Walter Schirra from the Gemini 6 spacecraft.

    'Call a policeman' answered Frank Borman from Gemini 7.

    'You're up close,' Stafford commented.

    'I can see your lips moving,' Lovell replied."

    Separately signed in various inks as follows: "W M Schirra Jr", "Thomas P. Stafford", "Frank Borman", and "James Lovell". A lot of display potential here as there are great images available of this historic space feat. Mailing folds, all very fine.
