I have an album given to Wernher von Braun on his 60th Birthday. It's titled X+60 and counting. It's a copy but its pretty neat.

Each page is a letter from someone telling him happy birthday and looking back at experiences each one had with him. From any and every Colonel to a co worker to Walter Cronkite. I would guess at about 150 to 200 different letters.

Has anyone ever seen this before? I wonder how many copies of this are around? About 15 are in German so I have no idea who they are. Any idea of the value?

Anybody know the value of Wernher von Braun's 60th Birthday album?

I have researched and found hardly anything. I found a library that has one copy of it and it is in their rare book section. I want to sell it, but have no idea how much to charge.

Maybe as a reference the large 50th Birthday books regularly sells for US $900.
