|leslie||Yup, brilliant value and am grateful that I secured my order.|
I am sure they will sell out of these very quickly.
It does add creedence to the suggestion that the ASF should perhaps try to get some "big gun" names on their shop list. (this suggestion in no way denegrates any article currently for sale)
Genuine collectors can feel safe in the knowledge there is no problem regarding authenticity from this source.
|Leon Ford||Just wanted to say how easy it is to order one of these fine prints. I just called the number on the site and gave them my VISA card and the print is in the mail to me! It doesn't get much easier than that.|
A great print and a fantastic cause! I hope everyone takes advantage of this offer.
|apollo11lem5||I agree with the previous comments !! It is really easy to order and a great cause. A definite 100% value and unquestioned authenticity ! It really benefits all of us to be Collectspace readers. Best To All....Donald Brady|
Is this really that good of a buy? I would be interested in some further encouragement before I purchase.
Any more thoughts?

|DOX32||Just ordered mine.|
Remember there are just 50 of each and they will go fast.
Great organization to support as well.
|Larry McGlynn||I have purchased one of the 8x10 photos. I just thought it was a good deal. ASF provenance, 25th anniversary and a nice photo montage.|
I was talking to Linn Leblanc today and she says that they will sell out, so hurry up and make your decision.
|email@example.com||I consider that extra ecouragement and have made the purchase of the 8X10.|
|dave sixsmith||well i just had to go for the biggy!!!at just under $600 after the aurora and swann auctions my wifes going to flip when she sees the visa bill!!!!!!|
|TRS||You and me both Dave (although I did admit to Sharon as soon as Linn had confirmed there were still biggies to buy!)|
|dave sixsmith||yes craig but sharon is more laid back than my wife!!!she thinks my hobby should be her and the kids 24/7..but spae flights in my blood always has been always will be....|
roll on august see you then if she will let me out the country and not burnt my passport..
|Dennis Beatty||To the others that ordered the ASF print commemorating STS-1: I am looking at mine and I notice what almost looks like a scratch on the image on the bottom left corner (Columbia on the pad at night). It is located on the upper left hand corner of that image. It almost looks like a cable. Does anyone else have this?? |
If so, is it a photographic artifact or is it an actual component of the gantry complex??
Could it be the slide wires that the escape baskets use?
|sthomas9999||Tim is correct, it is a wire. However the wire you are referring to connects to the top mast (white pole) to protect the launch pad from lightning (ground). Hope this helps.|
|Dennis Beatty||Thanks...I knew that this group would have the answer!! Funny, I never noticed it in other photos before.|
|capoetc||Well, I delayed for a while but finally decided to take the plunge for one of the 8 x 10's. |
Great service, and the photo was well packaged with a nice COA included (now, I have Linn LeBlanc's signature too ).
I got #41 of 50, so presumably there would be only 9 8 x 10's left if anyone is still interested. I don't know how many of the larger prints are left.
I was hesitant to buy one since I had already plunked down a bunch of $$$ to complete my Apollo 10 crew signed cover (which might be the most rare cover after Apollo 1 ...). Still, I decided to go for it because it's an attractive piece, the authenticity is iron-clad, and ... it's for a great cause!
