    Ed White II: Collection of Original NASA Glossy Photos from His Personal Collection. A vintage three ring binder labeled by White on the spine, "Volume 1", containing thirty-three 8" x 10" B&W glossies, telling the story of his early training as one of the second group of astronauts chosen. In the front is a "table of contents" handwritten by White listing fourteen topics such as "Huntsville Trip", "Cape Trip", and "Zero G Flying".
    Some of these photos are quite rare, a partial listing:
    S-62-8236: "MSC Flight Crew Personnel viewing Titan launch from Central Control, Cape Canaveral, Fla."
    S-62-8195: "New MSC Flight Crew personnel visiting Titan Complex 19 and Blockhouse. Cape Canaveral, Fla." (pictures all nine of the second astronaut group).
    S-63-6654: "Astronaut Trainees White, McDivitt, Armstrong participating in weightless flight."
    S-63-8408: "NASA's sixteen astronauts participate in tropic survival training from June 3, through June 6, 1963 at Albrock Air Force Base, Canal Zone."
    Photos are generally in fine or better condition.

    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.
