Description

    Original Robert McCall artwork.

    Robert T. McCall: Four Beautifully Hand-Painted and Signed Large First Day Covers, Originally from His Personal Collection. Gorgeous space-themed watercolors, one each signed by Scott Crossfield (1921-2006). Buzz Aldrin, and John Young, as follows: (1) A large #10 cacheted First Day Cover bearing the complete block of eight "Space Achievement" stamps (Scott #1912-1919) as designed by McCall, cancelled May 21, 1981. McCall has painted a lunar module-type craft lifting off from a barren lunar landscape and has signed in full under the stamps: "Robert T. McCall", and also "McCall/11-21/02" in the painting at lower right; (2) On the same type cover as above, McCall has painted an X-15 soaring high in the atmosphere. He has signed in full at lower left beneath the cachet and it is signed: "Scott Crossfield/ X-15" beneath the stamp block. Crossfield was a legendary test pilot; (3) Another of the same style cover features a painting of a space-suited astronaut planting a flag on the moon's surface. It is signed in full by McCall at lower left and signed by the second man on the moon: "Buzz Aldrin" next to the astronaut's image; and (4) Another of this same FDC, which was issued just a few weeks after the successful first flight of the Space Shuttle Columbia (STS-1). This painting is of that craft's landing and it is signed by the mission commander: "John Young" as well as in full by McCall. All four of these unique and displayable pieces of space art are in excellent condition.
