Back when STS-135 ended its mission and the race was on to grab shuttle era collectibles, an eBay seller was offering covers to commemorate the last launches. The commemorative covers were stored within the mobile portion (MLP) of the launch pad and cancelled the day of the launch before launch. Each cover came with a COA and locker location within the platform they were stored in.

I was wondering if there's any additional information on these covers and if there were previous launches. Also, is there a way to get a cover from either of the last three launches?

I hope Ken Havekotte is lurking. If anybody knows, Ken would know if this was done. Can you give the eBay item number?

This is something unfortunately I just remembered as they were listed a couple of years ago. I've been trying to find any and archived information on them. I too hope Ken is out there able to assist!
