    Wally Schirra's Apollo 11 Press Badge and Signed Photo with Walter Cronkite, Originally from His Personal Collection, with Signed LOA. A 4" x 2.5" NASA KSC and MSC Press pass for Apollo 11 made out to Walter Schirra of CBS, stapled into a clip-on plastic badge. A handwritten note on his personal 3.25" x 7.5" notepaper states: "I certify that this/ CBS 'Apollo 11/ Press' Badge was/ used by me during/ the first Moon landing./ Wally Schirra". Included is a 10" x 8" B&W glossy photo of Cronkite and Schirra at the Apollo 11 news anchor desk, signed in black felt tip by both. After being the only astronaut to fly in the Mercury, Gemini, and Apollo programs, Schirra retired from NASA. He then joined CBS as a consultant and co-anchored the Apollo 11 through Apollo 17 mission coverages along with Walter Cronkite. Badge shows light wear and use. Photo excellent.
