    Gemini 3-9A: Collection of Original Glossy Photos from the Collection of a NASA Photo Librarian. A great group of thirteen 8" x 10" photos. Seven of the nine color photos (all with captions on verso) are of the scarce and desirable "red number" variety, as follows:
    S-65-20742 (red number): Gemini 3 liftoff (tear at left margin).
    S-65-29644: Gemini 4 crew at Pad 19.
    S-65-29647: Gemini 4 crew in the white room.
    S-65-60037 (red number): Mission Control Center during Gemini 7.
    S-65-61838 (red number): Gemini 7 liftoff.
    S-65-63169 (red number): Gemini 7 spacecraft from Gemini 6A during rendezvous (tears along bottom edge).
    S-66-34075 (red number): Gemini 9A crew leaving suiting trailer.
    S-66-54456 (red number): Gemini 9A Richard Gordon EVA.
    S-66-54585 (red number): Agena Target Vehicle from Gemini 9A, post-tethering.
    These photos are generally in excellent condition save for some attached shreds of paper on the fronts. This was caused by the photos sticking together from years of storage in Houston's (in)famous humidity and should be easily mitigated. All images are available for viewing online.

    Also included are two B&W photos, S-65-19544 and S-65-19546, showing the crowds at the Manned Spacecraft Center during the visit of President Johnson on June 11, 1965. Two other photos are not numbered or captioned. B&W photos in excellent condition.

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
