I am looking to purchase a signed 8x10 Ron Evans signed photo. If anybody has a inscribed photo available to sell I would be very interested. (I am not interested in any WSS or crew photos.) Thanks.

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

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)?

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

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 ea.

I have an Evans uninscribed, unpersonalized NASA WSS litho. Not worth anywhere near 10K. I have not got an Irwin, but I have seen 6 for sale over the years and all have been between 3-6K except one.

Sorry, but if you paid that much you were ripped off.

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

As for the Irwin, there was a rather heated bidding war (Superior auction) so I'm sure it got inflated. But it's PERFECT. Gerry Montague was with me.

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 RRauction.

Gerry has also sold another to my knowledge.

Don't think so. I have no doubt it's authentic, but hardly a match.

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 Irwin and Evans here are mine:

Purchased on Astro Auction for less than $1,000.

And Evans. 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 had about a dozen Irwins, most of them unpersonalized. I just kept writing him and he keft sending them to me. Over the past 40 years, most of the signatures have faded to almost nothing. I kept the photos in my closet away from the light, but they faded anyway, probably because of the low quality pen he used. The only photos I have where I can read the signatures is the one of him beside the flag (made out to me) and an unpersonalized photo of Irwin at the Rover at the end of EVA 1 with Hadley Delta(?) in the background. The faded signatures can still be seen if you look at them in direct sunlight.

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.
