    Apollo 11 White Spacesuit Large Color Photo, Crew-Signed on the Presentation Mat to Houston Oilers Owner Bud Adams. A 14" x 11" photo laid down to a 16" x 15.25" mat. Neil Armstrong inscribed it at the top in black felt tip: "To Bud Adams--/ Sincere Best Wishes from Apollo 11 -". Beneath the photo are the signatures of all three: "Neil Armstrong", "M Collins" (faded to near invisibility), and "Buzz Aldrin" (just slightly faded). The original laid-down photo is heavily faded with a green cast that is very common in these presentations. We have had a modern copy of the image printed on professional silk finish paper that is shown in the photo above. It is not mounted in any way but will accompany this piece so that the winning bidder can choose whether to use it. Flaws noted, otherwise fine. Property from the Estate of Kenneth S. "Bud" Adams, Jr.

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
