    Signed by the flown crew

    Apollo 13 Crew-Signed Launch Cover Originally from Jack Swigert's Personal Collection, with LOA. A philatelic "Official Commemorative Cover" from the NASA Manned Spacecraft Center Stamp Club with the mission insignia cachet; the "Apollo 8" stamp affixed was cancelled at Houston on launch day, April 11, 1970. It is signed in black inks: "James Lovell", "Jack Swigert", and "Fred Haise". Launch covers signed by the flown crew are rare and quite desirable. This cover, signed only by Swigert was from his estate collection and included is a Letter of Authenticity signed by his sister. The Lovell and Haise signatures were added later. Excellent.
