I am doing some research on covers that were flown during the Apollo Soyuz Test Project (ASTP) in 1975.

What is known is cosmonaut Valery Kubasov flew a total of 25 covers which he had autographed by all five crewmembers and dated when they were signed. I have already been contact with collectors knowledgeable in this matter. I have the space auction catalogs back to 2001 which I'll look through to see if any were sold over the years.

Any cS member with any information and/or scans of covers, please email me with your information.

As everyone may know, ASTP is my collecting specialty. I have a collection I exhibit at stamp shows around the country. I hope to hear from you soon.
