My auctions are ending within the next 12 hours, not too late to bid on some fairly unique items.

Thanks for looking!

The Swigert, Cernan and McDivitt have sold. The Walt Williams, Gordon Cooper and X-1 multi-signed have all been re-listed with lower prices.

Thanks for looking!!

Wow! Interesting to see the signed Swigert typed bio of him. It was actually type-written by myself when I was a teenager during the early 1970s. I think it was traded off sometime during the late 70s when I started to acquire signed astronaut photos in my earlier collections. Never thought I would see it again, more than 40-or-so years later.

Ken, glad you recognized your typed bio! Now that I think about it, it may have been Donnis Willis that I bought it from at the ASF AAMS show at KSC in 2008. I purchased the typed bio and a signed WSS photocard of Swigert. If you would like a hi-res scan of the bio please let me know and I'd be happy to email it to you. — Derek

Ken, didn't something like this happen to you pretty recently? You recognized something - an Irwin signed WSS litho? - that you'd had decades ago? I guess when you have had as many fine items in your collection as you have, eventually you're going to start seeing some turn up again in surprising places.
