    Skylab Original Concept Drawing Reproduction Presented to Skylab I Pilot Paul Weitz and Directly from his Personal Collection, with Signed LOA, in Framed Display. A 5.5" x 7.5" quality reproduction of an historic drawing by George Mueller, an early drawing of what would become Skylab. One of these was presented to each Skylab crewmember at the fortieth anniversary celebration in 2013. Double matted and framed to an overall 11" x 13". Excellent.

    Included with this lot is a signed Letter of Authenticity from Weitz on his letterhead stating, in full: "This item is a reproduction of the original concept for a United States space station. It was drawn by George Mueller at a meeting at the Marshall Space Flight Center in August of 1966. This idea was eventually developed into the Skylab program. One of these framed copies was presented to each Skylab crewman at the fortieth anniversary celebration that was held in Huntsville on January 31st, 2013. It has been in my possession ever since, and is from my personal collection."

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
