Lot 477: Ballpoint signature, "Neil Armstrong, Apollo 11," on a light blue 5.75 x 7.75 sheet. In fine condition, with two horizontal folds (in no way affecting the signature). Accompanied by the original letter of transmittal from Armstrong's secretary, in full: "Enclosed please find the sheet of blue paper which Professor Armstrong was pleased to autograph for you. He did not include a quote, however. The reason for this omission is that he never quotes himself." A neat and crisp signature of the first man on the moon, made all the more appealing by its wry accompaniment. From the collection of noted publisher and founder of Lord John Press, Herb Yellin.
