    Description

    Apollo 14 Lunar Surface Flag Color Photo, Crew-Signed on the Mat with Humorous Message from Alan Shepard to Photographer Bill Taub, in Framed Display. A 9.25" x 7.25" photo of Alan Shepard and the American flag mounted to a 13.75" x 10.75" mat and framed to an overall 16.5" x 12.5". Above the photo Alan Shepard has written: "To Bill Taub/ with thanks for a great job - keep trying, they'll turn out like this someday! Apollo 14". Beneath are the crew signatures: "Alan Shepard", "Stuart A Roosa", and "Ed Mitchell". The writing is somewhat faded but quite distinct and readable. The photo has faded considerably but could easily be replaced (a beautiful quality modern print is included in case the winning bidder does want to replace it). Mentioned fading, otherwise fine. From the estate collection of legendary NASA photographer Bill Taub.
