    Description

    Pair of 1961 Soviet Cosmonaut Gloves from the world's first spacesuit SK-1 (Vostok program), the same type as Yuri Gagarin used. The gloves are orange nylon with gray leather palms, with a metal ring cuff and clamp. There is a date from 1961 on the inside, along with some undiscernible writing. The first space flight was a secret preparation and these are almost unheard of in private hands. The leather palms of the gloves show some wear. Soviet cosmonauts were the first humans in space aboard their Vostok capsules. Vostok 1, launched on April 12, 1961, carried the first person in space, Yuri Gagarin. Vostok 2 carried Gherman Titov, who stayed in space for twenty-five hours.

    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.
