I have listed several previous unlisted 8x10 signed Apollo images on eBay using the buy-it-now feature.
  • Michael Collins (WSS)
  • Buzz Aldrin (two lunar signed photos)
  • Jim Irwin (Flag salute)
  • Frank Borman (two signed photos)

I will be listing more Apollo signed photos later today and tomorrow. Thank you for looking.

Update: I've lowered the price on the two Frank Borman signed photos listed on eBay that will end today.

I've just pulled off the Jim Irwin Flag signed photo from eBay. I have become uncomfortable with the large traffic this piece was generating without bids. I did an archival research on the name tswee10305 on collectSPACE and discovered forum discussions in 2004 assessing this seller as dubious.

I'm going to have to get a second opinion on this Irwin before I put it in the market-place again. My apologies.

Sorry to hear that Irwin was removed. I still have my copy that I got from him back in 1973 before he preprinted everything.

One of the reasons I've bought so many pieces from you is your honesty and committment to collectors like me. Plus, you have a most excellent collection. It must be hard to part with so many great things, but I want you to know that the ones I've bought from you have found a very happy place to call home. I can't wait to see what else you have to sell.

I'd be interested again in the Irwin, if it can be found to be legit. To be perfectly honest, I was very tempted to buy it when I first saw it, but the inscription looked funny to me. I could be totally wrong but the signature itself looked good to me. It just didn't seem to match the inscription. That's why I hesitated.

Please note from the above, "before (Irwin) preprinted everything."

Just for the record, Col. Irwin never printed his signature for autograph collectors and space enthusiasts.

Always, he would hand-sign just about anything submitted to his offices or if asked in person.

There was, however, a pre-printed inscription of "His Love from the Moon" later added to his last batches of lunar/flag photographs, but the Apollo 15 moonwalker would regularly hand-sign right below the copied inscription.

The only printed autograph of the 8th lunar explorer appears on a few (about three-four versions) of his High Flight Foundation brochures and promotional literature.

Can you scan for us here any of your Irwin signed material that you would like another opinion on?

I didn't mean to imply that Irwin's signature was pre-printed. I was solely referring to his inscriptions.

Sorry for any confusion I caused.

I don't know how to add a photo from my computer to this site. I am willing to post autograph for opinions.

Editor's note: How to post images.

Thanks Steve, for your opinion in this item.

I'll probably relist it with other unsold Apollo signed photos.

I have reduced prices on unsold eBay items, and I will be posting new signed photos during the next couple of days.
