|alanh_7||Could anyone tell me if there is a way to get my copy of 'Failure is Not an Option' signed by Gene Kranz?|
|kr4mula||In my experience, Gene was signing anything and everything people asked him to. He's also gracious about posing for photos. If you can run into him, I'm sure he'd sign it. |
Not sure if he'd do it via mail, but I would expect so if you can get his address. His website doesn't seem to be up and running these days.
|kimmern123||Gene's always been a very good signer through the mail. I actually called him just out of the blue almost a year and a half back and we had a very nice conversation. After that I sent him a copy of his book to sign, which he very quickly returned, signed and inscribed. He also included the principles of Mission Control signed by him. Through and through a great man!|
One thing to note though, I know he has asked that people send a maximum of two items to sign. He has some condition that makes it hard for him to sign a lot of items at once, but I'm sure every member of collectSPACE will comply with his request.
Have a great day!
|alanh_7||Thanks for the information.|
I am a little hesitant to send a my copy of his book to him, I am sure he is very busy. That being said, I am a great admirer of Mr Kranz and would like to have his signature. Everyone I have talked to says he is a great at signing items, but I would not wish to impose.
|mjanovec||Alan - I bet he would be more than happy to sign for you if you mailed him the book, especially since you are a true fan that wants his signature for all the right reasons. Just write him a nice letter explaining your interest and provide a stamped padded return envelope for him to return your book.|
Kranz is used to signing for people through the mail and doesn't appear to have any problems with it...as long as you're not abusing the privilege.
|alanh_7||Thanks for the advise. I bought a new hard cover of his book today and I am going to send it to him with a note asking if he will sign (along with the prepaid post of course). I appreciate the advise from everyone. |
|Tyrell's Owl||After many months of reading the brilliant cS site, I have finally posted my first message! I am always amazed at how wonderfully helpful fellow cSers seem to be.|
I too have a book and a poster that I would dearly love Mr. Kranz to sign. Does he charge for his signature?
Please forgive me for jumping in and asking. Thanks for raising the topic Alan... if I could get my 2 items signed I would be made up! Thanks very much. Hope this is the first of many!
|dogcrew5369||Since the last post here is old, I was wondering if Gene Kranz still signs through the mail? I have his book and want to send it to him. Thanks.|
|COR482932||He is a great signer.|
|randy||I had a great experience with Mr. Kranz sending me some signed items.|
|Hart Sastrowardoyo||Sent him a photo on March 25; received it on, of all days, April 13.|
|Space Shuttle Endeavour||I sent out a request to Gene Kranz on Aug. 26, 2013 and have yet to receive a response. How long has he been lately? I am really excited because he is one of my heroes.|
|Smokeynick||I had success with him a few months ago. I believe my item came back within a few weeks. |
|Space Shuttle Endeavour||Ok. Thanks for the quick response. I wonder why mine has not came yet.|
|Robert Pearlman||Kranz isn't running a business. You are essentially asked him a favor to sign and return your mail. So, I would start off by not expecting a reply on any schedule and then be pleasantly surprised if and when one comes...|
