Cernan signs and inscribes for both on the mount in black ink, "To 'Gunner,' with sincere professional and personal appreciation, Best wishes, Tom & Gene." Framed with a nameplate to an overall size of 19.25 x 21.25. In overall fine condition, with some fading to Cernan's inscription on the mount. The fragile original frame remains and the glass is quite cloudy from display but could be easily replaced and is already open in the back for photography purposes.
