Alan Shepard, John Glenn, Neil Armstrong, and six othersRobert L. Rasmussen Signed Limited Edition "Naval Aviation in Space" Print, #637/1000, Signed by Nine Astronauts. A 26" x 29" artist-signed and numbered color lithograph of a watercolor collage by noted artist (and Naval aviator) Robert L. Rasmussen, with scenes depicting various periods of the American space program. Nine naval astronauts have each signed in pencil in the bottom margin above their printed names, as follows (left to right, top row first): "Rick Hauck" (STS-7, STS-51-A, STS-26); "Alan Shepard" (Mercury 3, Apollo 14); "Neil Armstrong" (Gemini 8, Apollo 11); "Charles Conrad Jr." (Gemini 5, Gemini 11, Apollo 12, Skylab 2); "Jack Lousma" (Skylab 3, STS-3); "John Glenn" (Mercury 6, STS-95); "Gene Cernan" (Gemini 9A, Apollo 10, Apollo 17); "James Lovell" (Gemini 7, Gemini 12, Apollo 8, Apollo 13); and "Wally Schirra" (Mercury 8, Gemini 6A, Apollo 7). These prints were all signed during an event at the Naval Aviation Museum in 1989 to raise funds for the museum. A rare and desirable combination of signatures including the first American in space, the first American to orbit the Earth, the first man to walk on the moon, and also the last man to do so. Excellent.
