Lot 574: Nice collection of four letters and one document, each signed by a moonwalker, including: Buzz Aldrin (TLS), Charles Conrad (TLS), Jim Irwin (ALS and DS), and Edgar Mitchell (TLS), who writes to legendary screen actor John Wayne, in part: "During my flight to the lunar surface with Alan Shepard on Apollo 14 I was indelibly impressed with a perspective of our planet that is different from the one we usually consider. I have reflected on that incredible panorama since the flight and have attempted to understand why a pragmatic astronaut like myself would suddenly turn his attention and his career from outer space to 'inner space' because of this experience." In overall fine condition. Accompanied by the original mailing envelopes for the Mitchell and Irwin letters.
