DescriptionApollo Space Food Pouches (Two): "Orange Beverage" and "Grapefruit Drink", Both Originally from Buzz Aldrin's Personal Collection, with LOA. Astronauts apparently didn't just drink Tang! Here are two yummy citrus beverages for your collection.
(1) A 3.375" x 15" sealed plastic pouch. The label on the front gives the hydrating directions: "Orange Beverage/ 7 oz. cold water/ 2-5 minutes/ 2076 [stamped]/ WSD 18 [circular stamp]". The label on the back gives the serial number as "FBA739". There is a small square of white Velcro attached.
(2) A 3.375" x 15" sealed plastic pouch. The front label states: "Grapefruit Drink/ 5 oz. cold water/ 2-5 minutes/ 1335 [stamped]/ WSD 16 [circular stamp]". The serial number on the back is "FAZ272" and there is a small square of white Velcro attached.
Both very fine. These were gifts from Aldrin to his sister Fay Ann. (Actually Tang was used mainly on Mercury and Gemini flights. Buzz Aldrin was recently quoted as saying that "Tang sucks".)
A Letter of Authenticity signed by Mrs. Potter's son (the executor of her estate) will accompany this lot.
