    Astronaut Jim Irwin's Armed Forces ID Badge, Signed. Business-card sized identification card issued by the Armed Forces of the United States, identifying astronaut James Benson Irwin as a retired Colonel in the US Air force. Irwin was a member of the Apollo 15 mission in 1971, and was the eighth man to walk on the Moon. Issued three months after his July 1972 retirement from NASA and the US Air Force, the laminated card features Irwin's photo and ink signature on recto, and his right and left index fingerprints on verso. Interesting notation on verso stating that the card cannot be used to obtain civilian medical care after March of 1995. Unfortunately, Irwin died of a heart attack at his home in Colorado in 1991. A unique and singular space-related item - impossible to duplicate!
