    John Glenn's Engraved Cup from Wedding Ceremony with Buzz Aldrin-Signed Postcard Celebrating STS-95, both Originally from Aldrin's Personal Collection. A 3.5" diameter x 3" tall pewter Jefferson Cup by Kirk Stieff (P52) engraved on one side with the Senate Coat of Arms and the name "John Glenn". On the other side is engraved "Lois and Buzz/ February 14, 1988", the date of their wedding. Also included is an 8" x 5" color "Godspeed, John Glenn" postcard signed in blue sharpie: "Buzz Aldrin". When John Glenn flew into space for the second time at the age of 77 on board NASA's Discovery shuttle flight STS-95, Buzz was at the launch in the newsroom where he, with some emotion in his voice, wished him "Godspeed." Cup shows light wear; postcard is excellent.

    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.
