Astronaut Moonwalkers Signed Baseball (3) Bean, Duke, Mitchell – COA PSA/DNAGo Back
Neil Armstrong and Edwin “Buzz” Aldrin were the first of 12 human beings who walked on the Moon. Four of America’s moonwalkers are still alive: Aldrin (Apollo 11), David Scott (Apollo 15), Charles Duke (Apollo 16) and Harrison Schmitt (Apollo 17).
In all, 24 American astronauts made the trip from the Earth to the Moon between 1968 and 1972. Three astronauts made the journey from the Earth to the Moon twice: James Lovell (Apollo 8 and Apollo 13), John Young (Apollo 10 and Apollo 16) and Gene Cernan (Apollo 10 and Apollo 17).
Presented is an OAL (Budig) baseball featuring signatures of three men who walked on the moon Alan Bean, Edgar Mitchell and Charlie Duke. There have been 12 men to walk on the surface of the moon and this unique baseball features autographs of three of them. They signed it in blue ink and listed their respective Apollo flights below their names. The baseball itself shows toning from age.
Authentication: PSA/DNA Auction House Letter
This ball is from one of the largest and most comprehensive collections of autographed baseballs in the world. Altogether they were easily displayable in custom shelf form and alphabetically displayed nonetheless. The choice of medium was visually easy for the encyclopedic collector who put these together. It took several decades to amass these rare autographs of the most prominent entertainers, historical figures, and sports players. It proved quite difficult to acquire autographs of non-ballplayers on such an odd object (a baseball) but diligence proved otherwise and that it’s possible. So, now with the collection complete and his shelves empty there’s only one thing left to do….bid on this item and start the challenge to see how far you can take it.
