I've been trying for years to assemble small photographs of the 12 moonwalkers to matte and frame together. It recently occurred to me that for this display I should make good color copies and keep the originals in my binder.

Therefore, the last few signed photographs I need to obtain don't have to be 4x6 (or so) like the ones I already have. They can be the more standard and more common 8x10, as long as the signature is within a portion of the photograph that would look good on its own, so I could trim the color copy down to a size close to the ones I already have.

For example, perhaps there is a photo of Gene Cernan sitting in the Apollo 17 rover. If he signed close to his image, after I copy the original and keep it safe in my binder, I'll be able to trim some of the black sky and lunar landscape.

(This isn't ideal, but as I say I have been on the lookout for signed postcards for quite a while. Of course, if you DO have a signed post-card-sized photo, that would be great.)

I am particularly looking for launch, on board the spacecraft, rover, and splashdown shots.

Please let me know if you have such photographs available.

One possible complication: the ones I already have do not have the missions noted by the astronauts, and I'd like to remain consistent with that.
