Apollo 11 flown items are the most sought after of any space mission in history. They mark man's historic achievement of conquering a new frontier.  Many of the flown items from Apollo 11 have doubled in value in the last decade. Provenance is everything when it comes to collecting flown items. The provenance on this item is spectacular having come directly from Apollo 11 astronaut Buzz Aldrin's personal collection. In 2019 Christies sold a similar Beta Cloth crew emblem for $37,500. 

Archivally framed with Tru Vue conservation glass to an overall size of 13.75 x 19.5. Beta cloth measures 6.5"x6.5". In very fine condition. Auction tag on the back indicates the item was originally sold by Christies in their September 18th, 1999 sale. Photos are of the exact condition the item is in. 

The SIGNATURIST-INK has dealt in dozens of APOLLO autograph items, flown artifacts, and space memorabilia authenticated across the board by respected names such as PSA/DNA, JSA, BAS, and ZARELLI SPACE, and is one of the most respected and trusted sellers of Apollo items. 

The text of the provenance letter from Buzz Aldrin reads:

"July 1999 This Apollo 11 Beta Cloth emblem flew to the Moon during July 16 to 24, 1969 on the Apollo 11 mission. The emblem was carried in the command module Columbia. The lunar module Eagle made the first lunar landing on July 20, 1969. The beta cloth has been in my private collection since 1969. I have written 'Flown to the Moon - Apollo 11' and signed it just below the emblem."
