    Description

    Signed by the first and last men on the moon

    Neil Armstrong and Gene Cernan Signed Apollo 8 "Earthrise" Color Photo, Obtained In-Person. A 9.75" x 7.5" silk finish photo mounted to foam core, the iconic image of earth rising over the lunar horizon. It was signed in black ink on different occasions. First: "Best Wishes/ To Rob Morton/ Neil Armstrong" and later: "To Rob Morton/ Best Wishes/ from/ the moon/ Gene Cernan". Gene Cernan made the comment when he signed it that it was the only item he had ever signed with just him and Neil Armstrong together. At a later meeting, he reiterated the comment to the collector. An historic piece, definitely a perfect item for display and almost certainly unique. Very fine.
