I am looking to purchase a signed 8x10 Ron Evans signed photo. If anybody has a uniscribed photo available to sell I would be very interested, any action photo like a launch, moon, Saturn V or earth would be really great. (I am not interested in any WSS or crew photos.) Thanks.

The best I can offer is an Evans signed postal cover.

Would greatly appreciate it if somebody has a signed Evans for sale.

I have one I'd consider parting with. Contact me off line, if you're interested.

Astro-Auction was selling items from the Evans collection a few years ago and the only uninscribed photos of Ron were a couple of business suits. I've never seen any other solo pix. It would be in five figures anyway.

Five figures? You've gotta be kidding. At that price I'd consider selling my uninscribed Evans WSS.

Five figures is way out of my pay scale. That said, has anybody a inscribed photo they would consider selling (but has to be unpersonalized)?

Normally, inscribed = personalized.

I paid over $11K for an uninscribed and unpersonalized Irwin WSS litho in 2000. It's the only one I've ever seen.

I have seen two signed EVA photos for sale in the last year. One was from a cS member for around $950 and another from a dealer for approx $1500. Both were unpersonalized but at the time I didn't have the cash.

Since Kim posted his comment I have received a email from a seller trying to offer me a signed Evans for $10000. I had to decline.

Boy someone jumped right on that $10000 quote to try and sell it didn't they! I hope they were joking with you a little bit.

I am talking about an uninscribed, unpersonalized, signed NASA WSS Litho. Evans — never seen one. Irwin, I have the only one I've seen, and it cost me plenty.

We sold several Evans EVA photos at Astro-Auction for a few hundred each.

I have an Evans uninscribed, unpersonalized NASA WSS litho. Not worth anywhere near $10K.

I'd like to see that Evans WSS. Even his wife and daughter had never seen one.

Not sour grapes, but I don't like the signature.

Well I purchased it off Gerry Montague, and his integrity is without question. I'm certain it is authentic. I also remember one example being sold in the last space RR Auction.

Gerry has also sold another to my knowledge.

Yes, Gerry has integrity, but he's not infallible. None of us are. (The RR page was a 404, but I believe you) one of them is certainly authentic. But this really IS the first WSS I've seen unpersonalized.

I stand corrected.

So all that said, I am still looking for a unpersonalized signed Evans. Would really like an EVA if anybody had one available for sale.

Thanks to Kim, Ben and everybody else for taking a interest.

On the trail of the apocryphal uninscribed Evans here is mine. Not sure of source and no, a personalisation has not been removed.

I'm not trying to compete with you, but I'm also looking for an Evans EVA photo. I don't care if it's inscribed or not. What I don't want is a date on the photo other than the date the photo was taken.

I also have an unpersonalized Evans on a photo that I took through the TV during his EVA. I won't tell you how many times I've kicked myself for not asking for a signed litho. I'd like to buy one myself, but I can't see spending that kind of money on something I already sort of have.

I am still looking to purchase a unpersonilized Ron Evans signed 8x10 Apollo photo. I do not require a WSS, BS or crew photo. I would like a launch, moon, space, etc., photo if possible. Thanks to all for your help in advance.
