DescriptionBuzz Aldrin: Three Awards on Wall Plaques Originally from His Personal Collection. As follows.
(1) A 13.5" x 16.5" shadow box wooden frame with a large L.A. Police badge replica dated 2003. The engraved plate below reads: "Dr. Buzz Aldrin/ In appreciation of your continued support and commitment to the Los Angeles Police Department West Point Leadership Program".
(2) A 16" x 24" wooden plaque with the color logo at top title "World Marketing Alliance Business Astronaut". There are two large engraved plates, one reads "To Buzz Aldrin", the other "A Great American Hero & An Inspiration To All WMA Business Astronauts. Tampa Top Gun IV World Marketing Alliance November 10-12, 1995".
(3) A 12" x 16" wooden plaque with a large S.O.C. logo appropriately in the form of a movie camera. The engraved plate reads: "The Society of Operating Cameramen. 1994 Technical Achievement Award. Presented to Buzz Aldrin, Astronaut. Representing the NASA Apollo XI Mission in 1969. Achieved Photography in Space and for the First Time on the Lunar Surface, thereby Advancing the Art, Craft and Potential of the Camera Operator". When Buzz appeared at the annual gala for the Society and was presented with the award, he shared some insights into the photographs taken on the moon. In particular, when he talked about the iconic "visor shot" of him standing on the lunar surface, Buzz told the audience that there were three words that described why this photo became so popular: "Location, location, location."
Excellent for display and impressing your friends. All fine or better.
