It's a long time since I saw any Apollo press kits on eBay (with the exception of Apollo 11). Would anyone care to speculate as to why press kits for the other Apollo missions have apparently done a vanishing act?

The state of the economy means prices are down, so perhaps there is less incentive to sell. Balanced against that is the widespread need to liquidate assets. Any thoughts?

It's probably just a cyclical thing.

I may have one. Have a lot of boxes of things close relative acquired during career with NACA/NASA and I know there are press kits along with a large number of glossy photos from unmanned and manned missions.

Supply and demand? People not really looking for that material? People looking for space shuttle material with the end of the program?

If someone would provide the supply, I can supply the demand.

I too am looking for some of the Apollo press kits. I need 8, 9, 10, and 14 to finish my collection. I too have not seen any on ebay in awhile.
