    The ultimate set of Apollo 1 signed photos

    Apollo 1 Crew-Signed [and] Backup Crew-Signed Matching Large Original NASA Color Photos (Two) as Presented to the Daughter of a Space Task Group Member. An amazing pair of vintage 14" x 11" chromogenic prints on Kodak fiber-based paper bearing the "A Kodak Paper" watermarks on the versos. (1) The first is the flight crew signed in black felt tips as follows: "Best wishes to Barbara/ Edward H. White II", "Gus Grissom", and "Roger B. Chaffee". (2) The second is the backup crew (which ultimately became the Apollo 9 flight crew), signed neatly in black felt tips: "To Barbara with Best Wishes/ Dave Scott", "James A. McDivitt", and "Rusty Schweickart". These were presented to Barbara Petynia, daughter of William W. Petynia, an original member of the Apollo Project Office from its formation in 1960. Also, the Grissoms and the Petynias were neighbors. It's hard to imagine a finer pair of photos. Very fine.
