A 6" x 4.5" heavyweight printed (both sides) card dated March 16, 1970. The front is titled "LOI LIMITS" with headings of "VGO", "Bt", "Mode", "Abort Limits", and "Call Out Modes and Limits" with instructions based on ranges of readings. The verso is titled "LOI NO GO's" and lists forty functions the loss of which would cause the crew to abort the Lunar Orbit Insertion.

    Included with this lot is a signed Letter of Certification from Lovell on his company letterhead stating, in full: "I hereby certify that the attached Apollo 13 checklist on board the Apollo 13 spacecraft. Apollo 13 perilous flight took off on April 11 and returned safely on April 17, 1970. This checklist is to be posted on instrument panel prior to Lunar Orbit Insertion.

This checklist was from my personal collection of space artifacts and has been in my possession since the mission."
