Lot 9365: Apollo 13 'Type 2' insurance cover, 6.5 x 3.5, with a cachet featuring the mission emblem with the astronauts' names and an astronaut pin printed underneath, bearing an April 11, 1970, Kennedy Space Center postmark, signed in black felt tip by original crew members James Lovell, Ken Mattingly, and Fred Haise, as well as replacement command module pilot Jack Swigert. Already a scarce and sought-after insurance cover given its small printing numbers, this Apollo 13 example is further enhanced by the presence of four crew members, including the uncommon pairing of original and backup CMPs Mattingly and Swigert. Provenance: Harold Collins Collection.
