Lot 9032: Two color vintage 5 x 5.75 postcard photos of the Voskhod 2 cosmonauts, signed vertically in black ink by Alexei Leonov, and in red ballpoint by Pavel Belyayev. Each postcard bears a commemorative stamp depicting Leonov floating in space outside his spacecraft, and both are postmarked March 23, 1965. In overall fine condition, with trivial wear to edges. Accompanied by a letter of provenance from Alex Panchenko, who includes three printed images of himself posing with Leonov, the original owner of the postcards. An appealing pair of signatures made all the more desirable by the presence of Belyayev, the Voskhod 2 mission commander who died just five years after his historic flight with Leonov. RR Auction's Space and Aviation Auction 463 Thursday, 22nd October 2015 Estimate: $400-600
