Description

    Apollo 9 Crew-Signed White Spacesuit Color Photo and Jack Benny Congratulatory Telegram Originally from the Personal Collection of Jim McDivitt, with Novaspace COA. Two great items, as follows.
    Photo: A 10" x 8" silk finish photo signed boldly in black felt tip by all three: "Jim McDivitt/ A-9", "Dave Scott/ Apollo 9 CMP", and "Rusty Schweickart/ Apollo 9 LMP". Very desirable as signed. Tape residue on verso, excellent.
    Telegram: An 8.5" x 8.25" telegram date-stamped by the MSC mail room on March 15, 1969. Sent by the legendary comedian, it reads in part: "Congratulations, I was at Cape Kennedy when you blasted off. And I wanted to see you in person when you returned. But they wouldn't let me because they thought I was too old to be in a life raft..." Included with it is a COA from the Jim McDivitt Garage Sale. Very good.
