Description

    Spacesuit glove from Alan Shepard, Moonwalker and America's first man in space.

    Alan Shepard Training-Used Apollo A7L Left IVA Glove with Original ILC Tagging. An amazing offering. This is one of a pair of Intravehicular Gloves made by International Latex Corporation for use only inside the spacecraft. The restraint and bladder structure consists of a rubber/ neoprene compound that was molded from a casting of Shepard's hand for a perfect fit. There is a nylon inner lining and a blue metal connecting ring at the wrist; the area nearest the wrist is covered in Beta cloth. The sewn-on tag near the little finger reads "SHEPARD" and there is another sewn-on tag marked all around with red ink on the top. It bears the following information: "PART NO. A7L-103000-19/ SIZE A. SHEPARD/ SERIAL NO. 205/ CODE 74897/ ILC INDUSTRIES INC." This glove was given to a NASA insider many years ago by Shepard and handed down in his family. They are rarely offered for public sale. Many advanced collections cannot boast of such an item. Certainly a rare opportunity. The glove is in generally good condition but, as expected, the rubber has become very brittle and stiff. We note a cracked-open area on the thumb.
