    Description

    Gene Cernan Signed Large Gemini 9A "Angry Alligator" Color Photo Originally from His Personal Collection, with COA. A 14" x 11" photo mounted to a 16" x 13" mat board, signed in silver ink on the photo: "The Angry/ Alligator/ Gene Cernan/ Gemini IX". The photo is of the Augmented Target Docking Adaptor with which Gemini 9A was supposed to dock. The maneuver was unsuccessful because the ATDP's fairing failed to eject at which point Tom Stafford stated that it looked like an angry alligator. Excellent.

    Included with this lot is a Novaspace Certificate of Authenticity from the "Gene Cernan Garage Sale" stating (in part): "This item is from my personal collection of memorabilia from my career as a NASA astronaut..." Note: the signature on the COA is a facsimile.
