Neil Armstrong

Neil Alden Armstrong was an American astronaut and the first person to walk on the Moon. He was also an aerospace engineer, naval aviator, test pilot and university professor. In July 1969, he became the first man to touch the moon land where he said the famous quote: ‘’that is one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind’’.

This is a NASA Official Color 8x10 Lithograph of Armstrong in his white spacesuit, signed in blue felt tip. In fine condition. Accompanied by the original letter of transmittal from Armstrong’s secretary, dated March 29, 1974, in full ‘We are returning your first day covers unsigned. Professor Armstrong has been most generous in the past with his signature for these items. However, unfortunately for the sincere collector like yourself, this generosity has been somewhat abused by those requesting his signature on these items for commercial purpose. Since you are interested in obtaining his autograph, he has signed a photograph which are happy to enclose.’ This nearly pristine NASA lithograph is made quite uncommon by its lack of an inscription, and is furthermore enhanced by the inclusion of its seldom-seen transmittal letter. The item came with RR Auction COA and was Pre-certified by Steve Zarelli.

Alan Shepard

Alan Shepard was one of the original NASA Mercury Seven astronauts. He became the second person and the first American to travel into space. He was the commander of Apollo 14 at age 47 and the oldest astronaut in the program. More importantly, he piloted the lander to the most accurate landing of the Apollo missions. He passed away on 21st July 1998 due to leukemia.

This item is an Official NASA white space suit (WSS) lithograph signed by Alan Shepard, who also added “Reach to the Starts and Apollo 14”. It is one of the toughest WSS portraits to acquire in an unpersonalized form. I am pleased to have this rare item from Shepard in his official WSS lithograph. It is almost impossible to get the item again with the same good price. This item also comes with LOA checked by Steve Zarelli on the right. The item is under an excellent
condition.

    FC Barcelona

    FC Barcelona is one of the biggest football clubs in the whole world. The club sells souvenirs for thousands of Euro year after year and hits next sales records. It seems to me that original, received in-person autograph could be better and more valuable item than next scarf or t-shirt. This is why so much fans decide to go to FC Barcelona training ground Ciutat Esportiva Joan Gamper in Sant Joan Despi. I was there several times and I did not regret at all even if I did not collect lots of signed photos.

    Jenson Button: 

    He wrote one autograph per meeting an colletor. More is simply not possible to get from a current World Champion. But never the less he was very kind and in a good mood.
