    "This is a little 'bonus' for talking to Neil and Al..."

    Space Stamp Collection Presented by Walter Eiermann to Walter Cunningham, Originally from his Personal Collection. A sixteen-page, 7" x 9.25" bound stamp stock book with glassine interleaves, containing dozens of mint space-related stamps from all over the world. It is inscribed on the front free endpaper: "To Walt Cunningham/ with Best Regards from/ Walter & ? Eiermann". There is an additional small packet of stamps with a note: "Dear Walt!. This is a little/ 'bonus' for talking/ to Neil and Al./ See if you can/ interest another/ friend./ Regards. Walt". Eiermann was the agent for German stamp dealer Hermann Sieger and made various memorabilia-related deals with the astronauts including the infamous Apollo 15 flown cover incident. This was more likely related to the Sieger signed stamp souvenir sheets (see other lot in this auction); Armstrong, Bean, and Cunningham all participated in that project which is mentioned in Cunningham's book The All-American Boys. Very fine condition. From the Steven R. Belasco Collection of Space Memorabilia.
