    "Our long time friend"

    Apollo 13 Large Color Photo, with Jack Swigert, Crew-Signed on the Presentation Mat to Houston Oilers Owner Bud Adams. A 14" x 11" business suit pose photo laid down to an 18.5" x 15.5" mat. Jack Swigert inscribed it at the top in bold black felt tip: "Bud/ With admiration and warm wishes to our long time friend/ The Apollo 13 Crew". Beneath the photo are the signatures of all three: "James Lovell", "Jack Swigert" and "Fred Haise" (lightly 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.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
