Description

    Space Shuttle: Personalized NASA Aluminum Clipboard Directly from the Personal Collection of Astronaut John Young, Signed. A 9" x 11.75" spring-loaded, foldover, covered clipboard. On the front is mounted a 9" x 9" metal plaque with "John F. Kennedy Space Center" printed above a 9" x 5" photo-engraved image of a Space Shuttle rollout (possibly STS-1) and "John W. Young" printed beneath along with the NASA logo. Young has boldly signed at the bottom: "John W. Young". The maker's name "Handcrest" is engraved on the back. Our research has shown that these clipboards were manufactured for various government agencies by the Seattle location of the Lighthouse for the Blind, Inc., and are made by employees with visual disabilities. A printed copy of an article from the Seattle Lighthouse Horizons newsletter about these clipboards will be included with the lot. John Young was the commander of the first Space Shuttle mission, Columbia STS-1, in April of 1981. He also commanded the Columbia - Spacelab 1 STS-9 mission in 1983. A unique and personal memento. Excellent 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.
