    Valentina Tereshkova Signed Photo and 1963-64 Tour Itinerary. A 3.625" x 6.25 silk finish B&W photo of her in her spacesuit and helmet, signed in black felt tip in the bottom margin and dated April 6, 1992. Also, a fascinating internal Soviet typed carbon document dated August 1963 with note and signature at bottom. It spells out upcoming travel stops for Tereshkova (and others) from August to January 1964. Her Vostok 6 flight in June had earned her a Hero of the Soviet Union award and she would travel to several countries to a hero's welcome. A rough translation of document is below. Very fine.
