    Space Shuttle Columbia (STS-3) Flown Cue Card Holder with Color Photo Showing its Use, Both Directly from the Personal Collection of Mission Commander Jack Lousma, Signed and Certified. An odd-shaped, heavy cardstock three piece assembly, 8" x 17.75" overall, held together with cellophane tape, titled "CDR FLIP CARD ASSEMBLY" on the top piece and with a B&W mission insignia glued to the center piece. There are strips of Velcro front and back. This was attached to the "dashboard" at the commander's position in the spacecraft and used to hold cue cards as needed. Lousma has signed beneath the insignia: "Cue Card holder flown on STS-3"/ Jack Lousma". Included is a NASA color 10" x 8" photo (red letter STS-3-19-4) showing Lousma at the controls of STS-3 with this device plainly visible. He has drawn an arrow to it and has written in the top margin: "Cue Card holder in use on STS-3/ Jack Lousma". An interesting item with great provenance. Both in excellent condition.
