I have a copy of "We Seven," which I am considering selling. It's a first print copy, hardback black cloth edition not personalised and boldly signed by all seven.

It is in very good condition. The cover is immaculate & has no damage to corners or any paging creases and I would rate it a 9 out of 10 for condition.

Could I ask if anyone could give a value for this item? Many thanks.

Does it come with its original dust jacket? That is important. Also would need to see a scan. I have seen several copies of the book and at the least, the Grissom and the Slayton signatures are autopens.

Assuming they are not autopens it could sell from $2,000 to $4,000. If the two are autopens,and the others are genuine, $200-500.

Yes it does have the original dust jacket and yes the signatures are all genuine.

$4,000-4,500 seems to be the going rate at auction. If you're selling, try Bob at RR Auction - they have a Space sale being planned.

All times are CT (US)
