    Neil Armstrong Signed Invitation for a Reception Honoring the Apollo 11 Astronauts, July 15, 1969. A foldover 6.25" x 4.5" cardstock invitation with the Apollo 11 mission insignia on the front and the following text inside: "You are cordially invited to attend a reception honoring the Apollo XI astronauts on July 15, 1969 from 6 to 8 o'clock in the evening. Holiday Room. The Holiday Inn, Cocoa Beach, Fla." It is signed on the front in blue ballpoint: "Neil Armstrong". Our research shows that this likely refers to a Manned Flight Awareness reception where the crew showed up for an hour or so before heading to a NASA function. This is the evening before their launch to the moon. A 3.5" x 2" card also bearing the insignia, along with the text "Please present card for admittance", is also included. A vertical crease barely touches the edges of the signature, otherwise very fine. From the Apollo 11 collection of Ronald Ulrich.
