|ASCAN1984||I was just wondering if anyone has ordered from charlieduke.net and if so how did it go? |
|Rick Mulheirn||I sent stuff to Charlie long before he set his own website up. He is a class act. A pleasure to do business with.|
|ASCAN1984||That's what I thought. Am going to order from him now. Thanks for your input. Kind of sucks having to pay for an autograph but it is worth it. |
|cddfspace||General Duke is very kind. I have ordered two times from him - both times he actually called (I include my phone number in case of issues). |
First time, they misplaced my request and he was calling to see if I was still interested - we spoke for about 30 minutes. Second time (about a year later) he called to confirm location of a quote I was asking him to write on the photo (another nice conversation).
You will be very happy ordering through him. Good luck!

MY cardiologist would be out of business!

And that reminds me of another time my now ex-bro-in-law asked me, "So Russ, what does the Space Shuttle do? Just go back and forth to the moon?" He was serious.
|dave sixsmith||Charlie's a number one guy always a pleasure.|
My first trip to the states way back in 83 he invited me to his house and he and Dotty took me to lunch. Man... you should see the stuff he had on his walls including his beta cloth patches and thank you inscription on a photo from the Apollo 11 crew, wow!!! And then there were the maps they used on the EVAs.
In the same week I went to the Coors distribution warehouse in Deerpark Texas and met Al Shepard. Just wish I had taken some 16x20 to get signed!! He supplied me with some free samples... thanks Al.
|ASCAN1984||Ordered and my autograph arrived last week. Can't tell you how happy I am. Terrific. Would recommend to anyone. Cool inscription. A class act.|
|SpaceSteve||I ordered an 8x10 "Plum Crater" photo from General Duke's website on Jan 28th. I got it in the mail today and it is absolutely perfect! |
|CPCM||I had a Moonpan signed and it look less than 2 weeks. A class act.|
|nojnj||Absolutely great! I ordered the Lunar Tribute and the two DVDs. They arrived in less than two weeks. They were all personalized. "The Walk With The Son" DVD is truly inspirational. Great items and a wonderful price!|
|Torsten||Just a short update, as this topic hasn't been updated a while...|
Charlie is a very nice guy, he even sends e-mails and signs a custom declaration himself. I got a very nice autograph. Shipped after two weeks, arrived in Germany after two additional weeks (maybe due to German customs).
A great addition to my little collection!
|gnewt||Just wanted to add that I sent a prints to Charlie Duke from my current home in Brazil. He signed it with a unique inscription and returned the image to my permanent residence back in the U.S. |
He is a very gracious signer and returned emails themselves. A Wonderful man and a great signing experience! Very glad to hear that your experience went well too.
|Mr. Apollo 17||I sent a photo to Gen. Duke about 3-4 weeks ago and got it back autographed yesterday. Very great guy. He, John Glenn, and Gene Cernan all are great signers. Very happy!|
|cycleroadie||General Duke signed / shipped a picture to me, personalized to me, added the mission, and a short inscription, all for his all too fair fee without adding any extra fee for the inscription I might add. If you are looking for something from him I think you will be more than happy with the experience.|
|TLIGuy||I just wanted to update this thread regarding General Duke's signings via the mail. I know keeping things like this current is quite a task and the cS team has been fantastic at keeping the information current and accurate. The addresses provided for signatures via the mail are still right on the money.|
I recently sent General Duke a piece for signing on July 3rd with a next day Saturday delivery because of the holiday. Less than a week later the piece arrived signed just as requested. I really appreciate that many of these gentleman continue to sign by mail and General Duke is still a class act in doing so.
|schnappsicle||I seem to remember a few years back that there was a photo signed by Duke with a very long inscription on it describing what it was like to walk on the moon, or something like that.|
The reason I'm asking is that I contacted Duke and asked if he would write something similar to that for me at the upcoming ASF show. He said he would. I was worried because his website states that he has a 10 word limit on inscriptions. Apparently he's willing to exceed that at additional cost, which I am more than willing to pay.
Anyway, I was just wondering where I can find that photo that Duke signed a while back so I can get him to write something similar to it on my photo. If anyone has it or knows where there is a photo of it online, I would appreciate a scan or link. Thanks for your help.
|woodg2||I cannot help with the photo you are looking for, but he is a VERY accomodating signer. A couple of weeks ago ago he went out of his way and helped me complete a collection of Apollo 11 signed covers (you can see a pic in the stamps area of this message board). He was very willing to help me out and returned the cover very quickly, especially considering how busy his schedule must be. He is a true class act!|

|moonguyron||Robert, I have the same letter. Purchased so long ago I can't remember where I got it or how much I paid. I do remember it was sold as an original but it is so lengthy I thought it must me just a good copy. Therefore I never framed it. Any comment?|
|Robert Pearlman||I believe that Duke hand-wrote a number of these one-page manuscripts. I don't believe he offered reproductions.|
Someone else might have duplicated it and resold it, but you may want to take a closer look at yours as it may be authentic.
|moonguyron||On closer inspection mine differs from yours slightly and is signed 1999. I had had it in storage for years. Sure looks authentic. Thanks.|
|liftoff1||That appears to be one of the items that David Frohman of Peachstate Historical Society had produced back in the 1990's.|
quote: If you are talking about a long inscribed photo rather than a letter, then you may be thinking of the Moonpans Charlie Duke presentation.

|schnappsicle||Yes I was thinking of the Moonpans photo. Thank you for finding it for me. The letter is also very intriguing. I've never seen that or anything like it before. I'll have to play with the wording and see if I can combine the best elements of both I have a lot of homework to do before the ASF show.|
