As you probably know, a photo of the astronauts from Groups 1 and 2 was made with pre-printed signatures underneath the image.

You might assume that despite the seller's elaborate story (mother worked for NASA for 22 years; photo personally given to father by Alan Shepard) this eBay item is one of those preprints because a) the seller has 0 sales; and b) he lists one of the signers as Dic Slayton. But then you might look at the photo, and fall for his fiendishly clever wicked ploy! Beware! Do not make the opening bid of $50,000! Bewaaaaaaare!

P.S. I've never used any of the available emoticons. Should I here? The sarcasm did come across, right?

Oh yes, happy to pay 50 g's for a pre-printed litho that looks as if it's been smeared with a quarter-inch of honey. And his mother's name was or is Gloria Swanson Hendon? Gimme a break, pal! I'm ready for MY close-up, Mr. Hendon!

I used his link to see another photo of it...it is the same photo but larger.

Also lets you into his personal photo albums-why do people put their lives on the web?

He guarantees it, so what's the problem?
