An 8x10 photograph of a Buzz Aldrin painted portrait inscribed to John Young (To John with friendship respect and admiration Buzz Aldrin), which is apparantly an autopen. How about that. Buzz sending an autopen to John Young. It is then inscribed and signed again at the bottom left (To Cody From my collection to yours All the best John Young).

A wonderful piece of personally owned material signed by John Young - $175. E-mail to chelco@aol.com.

The Aldrin signature is, remarkably, an autopen!

I agree with Chet that it's an autopen. Also, the inscription next to Aldrin's signature does not appear to be in Aldrin's handwriting. The John Young signature and inscription do appear to be authentic, for what it's worth.

I guess the value of this piece will be in the eye of the beholder.

Updating this post to state that the ALDRIN signature is an autopen with an unknown inscription. The JOHN YOUNG signature and inscription are authentic and this is from the personal collection of Captain John Young. This is an 8X10 photo of an Aldrin portrait.

Now offered for $99.00 plus the shipping/handling cost
