Lot 9272: Rare first-generation official color matte-like-finish 10 x 8 'red-numbered' NASA photo of the Apollo 11 prime crew, signed and inscribed in blue felt tip, "Best wishes to Paul—Michael Collins" and "Buzz Aldrin," and "Neil Armstrong." Reverse bears "A Kodak Paper" watermarks. Tack holes to top and bottom borders, a tape-repaired tear to right edge, trivial creasing, slight fading to Collins and Aldrin writing and overall image (which apparently used to be of a glossy finish) otherwise fine condition. As an uncommon first-generation example, this is a truly remarkable official NASA photo of the legendary Apollo 11 crew, and is further enhanced by the presence of its exceedingly bold signatures.
