Remarkable NASA Apollo 8 Astronaut WILLIAM "BILL" ANDERS hand-signed 8"x10" red number Type 1 photograph. Anders inscribes the photograph "To Hal Johnson Best Regards Bill Anders". Hal Johnson is remembered for having invented the handheld maneuvering unit used during early space walks and designing some of the simulators used by the astronauts for the Apollo moon landings. Anders has autographed the photo in black sharpie along the lower right of the photograph.
Anders is known by space collectors to be notoriously difficult to find in any format. Anders has all but stopped signing for collectors and even as early as 2010 was charging $2,500 per signature on a photograph.
The autograph has been certified authentic by PSA/DNA expert examination. Sale includes original PSA/DNA Letter of Authenticity. GUARANTEED GENUINE - simply one of the finest BILL ANDERS signed items available on the market.
The SIGNATURIST-INK has dealt in dozens of APOLLO autograph items, authenticated across the board by respected names such as PSA/DNA, JSA, and ZARELLI SPACE, and is one of the most respected and trusted sellers of Apollo autographs.
Photograph has surface wear and loss in a few areas, toning to edges, creasing evident towards Anders right shoulder through the right edge of the photo. Photograph has a slight curl to it, would be easily flattened in a frame or book. Ink of the autograph has held up well. Back of the photograph has surface loss in the same area which affects Anders shoulder. Printed NASA photo infromation typical of a Type 1 photograph also featured on reverse.
An excellent chance to add a piece of space history to your collection.
