    Apollo 7 Flown Abort Mode Cue Card with Letter of Authenticity by Astronaut Walter Cunningham. Small cutout piece of cardboard bearing time/activity cues to be followed in case of a launch abort, measuring approximately 4.25 x 3. 25", with Velcro attachment on verso. Created for use during the Apollo 7 mission by Donn Eisele (command module pilot) and Walter Cunningham (lunar module pilot), this cue card would be Velcroed to the instrument panel at specific times during the mission. Accompanied by a typed letter of certification, on Walter Cunningham's Apollo 7 letterhead, which reads in full: "The Abort Mode cue card was flown and used during the 4,500,000 mile, Apollo 7 mission, October 11-22, 1968. Cue cards enabled us to enjoy hands free operation and to avoid the necessity of referring to check list books during time critical operations. There are a number of such cards velcroed to the instrument panel during different phases of the mission. The card shows the timing of a re-entry events in case of a launch abort at different stages of the ten-minute ride to orbit. Walter Cunningham, Apollo VII." Both the letter of authenticity and the cue card are in very fine condition and would make an excellent addition to any Apollo collection! From the collection of Walter Cunningham, who has included a signed Letter of Certification verifying its provenance.

    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.
