Lot 9109: Rare vintage set of five unsigned official color glossy 8 x 10 'red-numbered' NASA photos of Gemini 4 pilot Ed White's historic 20-minute spacewalk. Sequentially numbered "S-65-30429" to "S-65-30433," and each bearing "A Kodak Paper" watermark on the reverse, these incredible photos show White snapping his own pictures from high above the Earth. In overall fine condition, with trivial spotting and dings to edges. Already sought-after as individual photos, this visual journey of White becoming the first American to perform a spacewalk is enhanced markedly by its uncommon consecutive numbering, a collection hardly ever offered as such.
