    Description

    Gemini 7: James Lovell's White Room Access Badge Directly from His Personal Collection, with Signed Letter of Certification. A 2.5" x 3.875" laminated green badge with hole for clip (not present). On the front is printed "GEMINI Spacecraft White Room Access" with "GT-7", "10", and "1" stamped. The verso gives the standard Government Property Warning. Gemini 7 was Lovell's first space mission and the two week endurance record he set with Frank Borman stood for five years. The white room was atop the Titan launch vehicle at Pad 19, a sterile environment where the spacecraft was prepared for launch and where the astronauts entered the capsule prior to takeoff. A rare item. Very fine.

    Included with this lot is a signed Letter of Certification from Lovell on his company letterhead stating, in full: "I hereby certify that this White Room Access card was used by me during the Gemini 7 mission. Gemini 7 mission took off on December 4, 1965. This card is from my personal collection of space artifacts and has been in my possession since the mission."
