    Description

    Apollo 9 - Group of 21 Original NASA Photographs. The third manned Apollo mission, the second manned flight of the Saturn V launch vehicle, and the first flight of the Apollo Lunar Module, Apollo 9 left the ground on March 3, 1969 for a ten-day flight. Commander James McDivitt, Command Module Pilot David Scott, and Lunar Module Pilot Rusty Schweickart successfully proved, in earth orbit, that docking and undocking of the two modules would be possible in lunar orbit and that the new Apollo space suit with a self-contained life-support system would work on the moon without an umbilical connection to a spacecraft. This vintage collection of 21 official NASA 8" x 10" glossy color photos is mostly of the desirable variety with red NASA image numbers in the wide right margins. Contained is a nice variety of astronaut and in-flight images. Generally very fine condition. From the collection of renowned former physical trainer of the astronauts Joe Garino. This lot is accompanied by a signed certificate of authentication from Garino verifying its provenance.

    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.
