A one-of-a-kind piece of aviation history!


Incredible NASA worker's jacket signed by 70 astronauts including likely the last signatures of the Crew of STS-51-L (Challenger Disaster). Others like Moonwalker John Young, Apollo era astronauts James McDivitt & Ken Mattingly, first American woman in space Sally Ride, and notables like Jack Lousma, Vance Brand and dozens more have signed the jacket.

All autographs were obtained by a NASA worker from the OPF (Orbiter Processing Facility) who would have astronauts sign her jacket before they boarded their shuttles. These are almost certainly the last signatures of the Challenger crew as they checked into the shuttle before the disaster.

CERTIFIED AUTHENTIC - Sale includes accompanying original COA from the highly-respected JSA (James Spence Authentication) who have thoroughly examined the autographs and certify its authenticity.

This jacket has been signed by the complete crews of multiple shuttle missions including STS-1, STS-2, STS-3, STS-4, STS-5, STS-7, STS-8, and STS-51-L.
