General Charles Bolden is a former Marine aviator, astronaut (four shuttle missions, commanding two of them) and NASA administrator.

I am offering many items personally saved by Bolden over the years. I have assembled them into eight collections, each $45 plus $17 Priority Mail shipping. Each collection includes at least one of the following:

  • an award (trophy, plaque, etc.) from an organization, engraved to Bolden.
  • an item related to his military career.
  • an item related to his astronaut career.
  • a newspaper clipping about him.
  1. Collection 1
    Close-up of STS-107 medallion.

  2. Collection 2 is SOLD.

  3. Collection 3
    Close-up of Tiffany and Co brass clock, which needs a new battery.

  4. Collection 4
    Close-up of retired officers paperweight.

  5. Collection 5
    Close-up of Bolden's ribbons, including the DFC.

  6. Collection 6 is SOLD.

  7. Collection 7
    Close-up of a dish from a Manned Flight Awareness event at which the crew of STS-31 was being honored. Bolden's name and signature appear printed on the dish.

  8. Collection 8
    Close-up of the largest award offered.
(Please don't ask me to switch items. I carefully evened them out - one collection might have a so-so military item, then a fantastic space item.)

Please note that most of the metal, glass, and plastic awards have scratches.

Please email if you have any questions, or to tell me which collection you would like.

All times are CT (US)
