Lot 9280: Official color 8 x 10 NASA lithograph of Armstrong in his white spacesuit, signed in blue felt tip. In fine condition. Accompanied by the original letter of transmittal from Armstrong's secretary, dated March 29, 1974, in full: "We are returning your first day covers unsigned. Professor Armstrong has been most generous in the past with his signature for these items. However, unfortunately for the sincere collector like yourself, this generosity has been somewhat abused by those requesting his signature on these items for commercial purposes. Since you are interested in obtaining his autograph, he has signed a photograph which we are happy to enclose." This nearly pristine NASA lithograph is made quite uncommon by its lack of an inscription, and is furthermore enhanced by the inclusion of its seldom-seen transmittal letter.
