Rare LM flown cue cardApollo 17 Lunar Module Flown Lunar Descent Abort Checklist Cue Card Originally from the Personal Collection of Mission Commander Gene Cernan, Signed and Certified, with Signed LOA. A 6.25" x 7.75" heavyweight card printed on both sides and dated 9/14/72. The front is titled "No PDI + 12 APS Abort" and is signed in black ink: "Flown to the/ Lunar Surface/ on Apollo XVII/ Gene Cernan". The verso is also titled "Mini Football". This was retrieved by Commander Cernan prior to the jettisoning of the lunar module. The potential value of this card for the astronauts during lunar descent cannot be overstated; it literally could have made the difference between life and death had an emergency arisen. A very desirable space collectible. Extremely fine.
Included with this lot is a signed Letter of Certification on his personal letterhead stating, in full: "I hereby certify that the Apollo 17 Lunar Module Flown Lunar Descent Abort Checklist accompanying this letter was flown with me to the lunar surface aboard the Apollo 17 mission December 7-19,1972. This checklist is a 6.25" x 7.75" printed cardstock page containing malfunction procedures and was flown to the surface of the moon on the LM Challenger. The front is titled 'NO PDI + 12 APS ABORT', and the verso contains the title 'MINI FOOTBALL.' There is a handwritten number at the lower right corner, '7834.19' and both sides have the printed date '9/14/72.' This checklist is from my personal collection and has been in my possession since the mission."
