Lot 9193: Sought-after official color semi-glossy 10 x 8 'red–numbered' NASA photo of footprints on the lunar surface, signed and inscribed in blue felt tip by nine moonwalkers, including: "Best Wishes To Amy Rezmer—Neil Armstrong," "Buzz Aldrin," "Charles Conrad, Jr., CM. Apollo XII," "Alan Bean, Apollo 12," "Edgar Mitchell, Apollo 14," "Dave Scott, Apollo 15," "Charlie Duke, Apollo 16," "Gene Cernan, Apollo XVII," and "Harrison Schmitt, Apollo 17." In fine condition, with small emendations to caption on reverse in an unknown hand. Accompanied by a collector's provenance sheet listing the various locations each signature was obtained. Featuring at least one moonwalker from every successful lunar landing mission, this is a remarkable multi-signed official NASA photo further enhanced by its poignant imagery and the presence of Armstrong, the program's original lunar explorer and an astronaut whose autographic presence remains scarce on contemporarily signed items.
