    "The heroes of the moon"

    Apollo 11 Crew-Signed German Postcard Celebrating Their 1969 Visit. A 5.875" x 4.125" postcard with the headline: "Die Helden Vom Mond" (The Heroes of the Moon) and reading "1969 in Deutschland" along with images of each astronaut. It is postmarked with a pictorial cancellation in Berlin on October 13, 1969, and boldly signed in black felt tip: "Neil Armstrong", "M Collins", and "Buzz Aldrin". In late September 1969, the Apollo 11 crew, along with their wives and entourage, embarked on a Goodwill Tour of the World. Their schedule had them in Berlin on October 13th where they received a warm welcome. A very special memento of this visit. Excellent.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
