Lot 9392: Desirable Apollo 14 launch day cover with a 'Bishop' cachet of the mission insignia and three military wings below, signed in black felt, "Al Shepard," "Stu A. Roosa," and "Ed Mitchell." The cover is affixed with an "Apollo 14 Team Member" label in the lower right corner. In fine condition. Accompanied by a full letter of authenticity from Zarelli Space Authentication. Although similar to an insurance cover, this particular example bears an affixed 'First Man on the Moon' stamp, as opposed to the officially assigned Apollo 8 'Earthrise' stamp, indicating that these signatures were likely signed post-recovery. A unique and visually enticing cover signed by the entire mission crew.
