I'm confused. There are 9 beer cans for sale in the Space Out section. How are these related to space memorabilia? Thank you.

Yes, they were scheduled so they will start listing soon. Maybe just look tonight or in the morning when they have all had a chance to get on. Thanks Robert! The beer cans are from the OP also. Just ignore if you are just looking for the space goodies.

I'd consider anything from the Outpost to be 'space related'.

I'll be keeping an eye out for these listings, as I stumbled across the place once and had no idea it was THE astronaut hangout until I was inside. I was dragged there by someone who was looking for a certain type of beer they had. I consider myself very lucky to have had a beer there once (A Lone Star, if memory serves). I was saddened to hear not long ago that the place no longer existed, I had no idea it was a memory until very recently.

Just like people here would love to have something from Wolfie's down by the Cape from back in the day, I'll be looking at Outpost stuff on these listings...

Stephanie, did you cancel all the auctions this morning? Last I looked when there was about 50 minutes remaining, a few of the lots had bids. When I search closed or sold auctions however, I don't see any results...

Hi Robert! The auctions all ended at their normal time with great success. Lots of the items have new homes now and we are so excited about that! They will be enjoyed again! The 15 items that did not sell this time we will be relisted later today along with 40 new items for the week at the same spot: LoneStarJunkTrunk.com in "Space Out" category. Thanks for checking in with us! Happy Turkey Day and Be Blessed!!

I won two of the items. One of them had a signature of Jim Voss (whom I didn't have) as well as a mysterious Mike something or other signature. In my tired state, I didn't think much of it, just that Runco was on the photo and I could eventually get him to sign the photo.

Then my brain kicked in gear and I realized one of the other people looked like Fred Gregory. Which led me to wonder: "What flight did Gregory, Runco, Musgrave (who also signed the photo) and Voss all make?" Which led me to conclude the mysterious Mike is Mike Belt and thus a neat gag photo of the STS-44 crew....

Is the Barbara Morgan an actual hand signed photo or a copy? I am confused by the description.

Hey there Hart, you are right! Glad you got something cool for your wall!

Propliner1, if the item says "photo copy," it means the astronaut gave us a copy of an original. They did that a lot for public appearances and such. Make a stack to give out to people. We didn't complain. Whatever they gave us, it hung on the wall. We don't have many that don't have an original autograph on it.

Posting another new 40 items on this week LoneStarJunkTrunk.com "space out" section.

Just a helpful hint: I know your descriptions say, "All of these pictures have an original frames, however, if the picture had no damage we removed it from its frame so that we could offer FREE SHIPPING. If you would like its original frame, please do not pay immediately and send us a note when you buy stating you would like the frame it was in if there was one." - However, if the photo CAN be removed from the frame it would be nice to know.

Hey there Hart, yes, I agree. I am not doing very good with this. I put that because we wanted to send all of them out of their frames so shipping could be affordable. If they cannot be removed from their frames (and there are many) then we are putting that in the description.

I know there is a better way to do this, we are definitely on a learning curve. LOL

Thanks for the tips, I'm going to work on this for the next batch coming on tomorrow. Have a great week and thank you for your valuble time!
