Description

    Gemini 7 Flown Large-Size Texas State Flag Directly from the Personal Collection of Mission Pilot James Lovell, Signed (Twice) and Certified. This 17" x 11.5" cloth Texas Lone Star flag flew on what was, up to that point, the longest manned spaceflight (thirteen days, eighteen hours). Lovell has signed on the lower red stripe of this flag, "Flown Aboard Gemini VII/ James Lovell" and also on the white stripe (on verso), "Flown aboard Gemini VII/ James Lovell". These larger flags are much in demand by collectors and wonderful for display. Excellent condition with storage folds.

    Included with this lot is a signed letter of authenticity from Lovell stating: "[This] Large Texas Flag flown on GT-7 was flown on board Gemini 7 spacecraft. Gemini 7 launched in December of 1965 was the fourth earth-orbiting spacecraft of the Gemini series."
