    Project Gemini: Pane of Fifty Stamps Signed by Fifteen Astronauts including Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin, Michael Collins, Alan Shepard, John Young, James Lovell, and Gene Cernan. This 50-stamp pane of the se-tenant Gemini EVA stamps bears the signatures of all the Gemini-flown astronauts except for Gus Grissom and Ed White II who both perished in a January 1967 launchpad fire. The inscriptions are in various inks and in various positions, as follows:

Alan Shepard/ Freedom 7 5-5-61; Frank Borman/ GT 7/ 4-18-Dec 65; John Young/ GT-3 23 Mar 65/ GT-10 18 July 66; Buzz Aldrin/ Gemini XII/ 11-15 Nov 66; Neil Armstrong/ Gemini VIII/ 3-16-66; Gordon Cooper/ MA 9 15 May 66/ GT5 21-29 Aug 65; Tom Stafford/ GT 9 3-6 June 66; Wally Schirra/ Sigma 7 10-30-62/ Gemini VI 12-15-65; Dave Scott/ Gemini VIII/ March 16-17 1966; James Lovell/ Gemini 7 - 12/ 4-18 Dec 1965; James A. McDivitt/ Gemini IV/ 3-7 June 65; Michael Collins/ Gemini X 18-21 July 66; Dick Gordon/ 12-15 Sept 66; Gene Cernan/ Gemini IX/ 3-6 June 66; and Charles Conrad/ Gemini V & XI/ Aug 22-29 '65 / Sept 12-15 66".

    An absolutely amazing assemblage of signatures made so much more desirable by the detailed mission information added to each signature. Overall 8" x 10.25". Signed for Ann Sakowitz by these fifteen admirers. Contrast is only fair due to the dark color of the excellent stamps. From the collection of Robert T. Sakowitz.
