Lot 519: TLS signed by the entire Apollo 11 prime crew, "Neil Armstrong," "Buzz Aldrin," and "Mike Collins," one page, 8 x 9.5, NASA letterhead, July 8, 1969. Letter to Ramada Inn representative Jimmy Starr, in full: "Thank you very much for your recent letter of best wishes along with a copy of your Annual Report depicting the first hotel complex on the surface of the moon. We of the crew of Apollo XI sincerely appreciate your interest in our activities and are grateful for your support." Slight creasing to upper left corner, dings to evenly trimmed bottom edge, and a light block of toning from previous display, otherwise fine condition. Made all the more desirable by its unusual content, this uncommon letter was signed by the crew just eight days before the launch of their historic moon-landing mission.
