Does someone here have a launch photo of Mercury-Atlas 7, aka, Aurora 7, signed by Scott Carpenter available to sell? Color or black & white is fine - in 8x10-inch format.

Gerry at Astronaut Archives also has them...and he's less expensive too.

True, but the photo on Farthest Reaches includes the date, which the photo on Astronaut Archives does not. To me, it's worth the extra $11 to get something like the date on the photo.

I'd buy it myself, but I don't like the fact that he signed it at the bottom. It kind of takes away from the photo.

I think the autograph would be much better if he signed it at the top like the one on the Astronaut Archive site. It's easier to see up there and doesn't interfere with the purpose of the photo.

Basically, it just depends on what's important to you.

You're in luck then! There is one at the Astronaut Archives site that is signed at the top, includes the date, and is still $11 cheaper. It's item M7-116 (a few items below the one without the date).
