Buzz Aldrin signature at world's biggest autograph show

Apollo 10 pilot Stafford will also give only UK appearance at NASA autographs sale

The Astronaut Scholarship Foundation's Semi-Annual Auction is due to be held between September 4 and September 12.

It is part of Autographica - the world's largest autograph show, which will see thousands of signature hunters descend upon Birmingham, UK.

A number of extraordinary artefacts related to NASA's Mercury, Gemini and Apollo space programs will be up for sale.

The event will also feature a rare appearance and signing from General Tom Stafford, astronaut of Gemini 6 and 9, and the pilot of Apollo 10. It is billed as his only UK appearance.

Big items will include a 40th Anniversary limited-edition, autographed 'Moontage' print, priced $599.

The prints are signed by an American Hero representing each program - John Glenn (Mercury), James McDivitt (Gemini) and James Lovell (Apollo) and Buzz Aldrin (Apollo moon landing).

The exclusively signed prints are limited to 50 in each available size: 8"x10" and 12"x15". Each Moontage is accompanied by a certificate of authenticity.

Space memorabilia is big business as the moment, so collectors are and space fans alike should definitely get involved.

An Apollo 11 star chart used by Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin to map their position on the lunar surface recently sold at Bonhams for $218,000.

And a personal cheque signed by Neil Armstrong on the day of his lunar mission sold for a record $27,350 - 54 times its expected price.

Autographica will be held at the Hilton Metropole, near Birmingham NEC.

All proceeds go directly to support college scholarships for outstanding science and engineering students through the Astronaut Scholarship Foundation's program.

The auction will be available to in-person and online bidders.

If you want to register to bid, you can do so at the Astronaut Scholarship Foundation'swebsite.
