Many years back my son Simon started a small business with Patrick Moore, we were friends for may years. Two years ago, Patrick told my son Simon to take over and have it all as he was getting too old (at 85, that was a laugh, Patrick was never too old for anything).
Anyway it started out as STAR Distribution, my sons initials and went on to be sirpatrickmooresales.net. Now my youngest son Stephen who Simon gave all the items to is, wanting to sell everything to raise money for his college. He is registeed disabled, many will have seen him at Autographica, especially 12 where it was us who brought Patrick to.
Well we have compiled a list of items available for sale, the only things to be added are the large A) size moon maps signed and unsigned.
There are a number of "odd" items such as Patrick's real and personal Christmas cards he used to send out, taken from his mother's book, "Mrs Moore in Space," and other small items but for those interested the list is attached. For my son Stephen Rundle...
ALL sizes are extremely close but approximate.
