Walt's store has just gone "live". You can only get to it via the BIG YELLOW LINK on his home page at http://www.waltercunningham.com

Flown, Rare, and unflown items are available. This may also be the last chance for you to get a signed hard cover copy of "All American Boys" directly from Walt.

Promptness is a virture.

Payments are being handled by PayPal. If you object to that type of payment, I'm sure that Walt will be more than happy to accept payment via US mail if you drop him an e-mail to first reserve your item and confirm everything in advance.

Good luck! [there's some great stuff there!]

Cheerz!

Just to clarify several e-mails that I have received regarding Walt's Apollo covers:

He's in the process of scanning several representative covers. He has multiples from each mission, some with similar cachets, others with different cachets. It will be difficult for him to scan every one to pick and choose, but he guarantees that each signature on each cover is authentic - as he was the one that got the signatures to begin with.

Prices for the covers will also be posted soon. In the meantime, if you're interested in a cover, use the link on the page to send Walt an e-mail. He'll be more than happy to answer your questions and quote a price.

Cheerz!

I cannot find the BIG YELLOW LINK.

How BIG is it, and exactly WHERE is it?

There should be a big yellow sign that says "Click here for Flown Apollo VII Memorabilia" on his home page.

Or you can cheat and go directly to http://www.wowiewebdesign.com/walt/flown_items1004.htm for the flown items and use the button on that page to get to the unflown items

Thanks Tracy.

I was missing a download or something.

I was getting the Coming Soon banner.

We're good to go.

sometimes you have to hit reload/refresh a couple of times on his home page to clear your cache.


Glad you found it.

Just heard from Walt.

He's feverishly trying to answer all of the inquiries about the signed covers. You really caught him off-guard on this one. If you're thinking about getting any complete Apollo crew signed covers, I'd suggest getting an e-mail off to him immediately. walt@waltercunningham.com

A further update about the crew signed covers. Walt asked me to post the following [which is also on his web site]:

"All the crew covers offered here are from my personal collection. All signatures on these covers were obtained by me, and they have been in my collection for over 30 years. I have a number of covers from some missions, and those depicted are representative of those not shown. Each cover will have an inscription ON THE BACK "From my personal collection" and signed by me."

We'll be getting the representative scans up as soon as possible.

Cheerz!

Finally received scans and prices of Walt's Apollo covers. I will post them on his site this weekend and will notify everyone when they're up. The scans are representatives of what he's selling and they are, indeed, sweet. Beautiful cachets with excellent signatures.

Cheerz!

The Group 3 photo is now sold out. The Group 2 is still up for grabs [I think]

In response to a couple of inquiries, you may have to hit refresh/reload on your browser a couple of times in order for the cover information to appear.

Two new presentations are now being offered of the Apollo 7 flown American Flag and flown California State Flag.

Due to the size of the presentation piece, the edges have been clipped in the scan - but they're there on the real deal.

Cheerz!

Looks like there may be only one Apollo 8 and one Apollo 11 cover left. If you're interested, I'd suggest jumping on it. Can't beat the price and the provenance.

Walt has dropped his prices on his few remaining crew signed covers from Apollo 7, 12, 14, 15, 16 & 17.

He is also showcasing one flown item this time and has dropped the price on a flown US Flag with an updated presentation.

They're on his regular autographs/collectibles page at http://www.waltercunningham.com/autograph_policy.htm


He and Dot wish everyone at cS a Happy Holiday!

Walt has dropped the price of his Apollo 12 and Apollo 16 covers by another $100. Now you know what to do with your Christmas bonus!
