    Launch / Entry cue card

    Apollo 13 Flown "Launch/ Entry" Quick Reference Checklist Cue Card Directly from the Personal Collection of Mission Commander James Lovell, with Signed LOA. A 6" x 3.375" (overall) heavyweight printed card, dated April 1, 1970, odd-shaped and with three pieces of Velcro on the verso for mounting on the instrument panel. The various sections include procedures for: EPS (Electrical Power System) Aborts; Loss of 2 or 3 Fuel Cells; Main Bus Short; Loss of 1 A/C Bus or Inverter; Loss of 1 or 2 Bats; Bat Bus Short; Loss of Bat Relay Bus; and ECS (Environmental Control System) Aborts. An important relic from this near-disastrous mission. See the flown Launch Checklist book also in this auction (Lot 50102). Excellent.

    Included with this lot is a signed Letter of Certification from Lovell on his company letterhead stating, in full: "I hereby certify that this Apollo 13 Launch and Entry Checklist was on board the Apollo 13 spacecraft. It was put on the instrument panel for reference when needed. Apollo 13 perilous flight took off on April 11 and returned safely on April 17, 1970. This placard is from my personal collection of space artifacts and has been in my possession since the mission."
