Included with this lot is a signed Letter of Certification on his letterhead stating, in full: "This pair of gloves was worn by me on the Skylab II mission during July 28-September 25, 1973. These gloves were worn inside the Skylab Space Station and used primarily for hand protection during spacecraft maintenance rather than for warmth. They complemented a full uniform of interior-worn clothing including a jacket, trousers, pullover shirt, and slippers. The fabric is an early version of flameproof material in its natural color. Such items of clothing with more appealing colors were produced later when dyes compatible with flameproof fabrics became available. I hereby certify these gloves are from my personal collection and have been in my possession since the Skylab II mission."
