    Apollo 8 Crew-Signed 25th Anniversary Poster Originally from the Personal Collection of Astronaut Paul Weitz, Certified and Signed, with Signed LOA. A handsome 18" x 24" NASA poster titled "In the beginning..." featuring a photo of the moon's surface with the Earth "rising" in the background. There are facsimile signatures printed at the bottom but each member of the crew has signed boldly and authentically across the moon's surface: "Frank Borman", "James Lovell", and "Bill Anders". Weitz has certified this poster on the verso: "From my personal collection/ Paul Weitz". An awesome souvenir of the first flight in which man escaped Earth's gravitational field and traveled to another celestial body. Stored rolled. Very fine.

    Included with this lot is a handwritten and signed Letter of Authenticity on his letterhead stating, in fill: "To whom it may concern- As a member of the senior management at the Johnson Space Center, I received this Apollo 8 anniversary poster with the genuine crew signatures. It has been in my possession ever since, and is from my personal collection of space memorabilia."
