Offered here is an Apollo 11 "Type 1" insurance cover, 6.5" x 3.5," with a printed color cachet of the moon landing and a cancellation date of July 20, 1969, Houston, Texas. The piece is signed boldly in blue felt tip marker by Neil Armstrong, Michael Collins, and Buzz Aldrin. Cover is also marked along the reverse bottom edge, "BA25," which directly identifies the piece as coming from Buzz Aldrin's personal inventory. The cover is lightly affixed to a piece of personal letterhead, 8.5" x 11," signed by Buzz Aldrin in blue ink pen, which reads, in part "The Manned Spacecraft Center Stamp Club postal cover...is one of the 'insurance covers' signed by the Apollo 11 crew before our launch on July 16, 1969...The cover displayed above has been in my private collection since 1969 and has an identifier of BA25 written on the reverse side. It was signed by the Apollo 11 crew - Neil Armstrong, Michael Collins, and myself prior to launch." In beautiful condition. These famous insurance covers, produced immediately prior to space missions in order to provide financial security for astronauts' families in case of disaster, have earned near-legendary status as the ultimate space-related philatelic item, and exist as one of the most sought-after formats for astronaut autographs. Comes encapsulated and graded GEM Mint 10 by PSA/DNA and also includes a full PSA/DNA letter further confirming authenticity and grading, a PSA/DNA LOA for the Aldrin letter, and also features a full letter of authenticity from trusted Space Authenticator Steve Zarelli. Exceptionally boldly signed GEM MINT 10 cover signed by all three crew members and certified as originating from Aldrin’s personal collection—all perfectly encapsulated for commemoration by generations to come.
