I was given the book "Moon" signed by Gene Cernan, Deke Slayton, Ron Evans and Jack Swigert. It was signed in 1971 at a dinner event they attended, along with a signed program from the event. The book has many of the photographs pinned on blank pages. I have no doubt the signatures are authentic, as my friend’s parents hosted the event at their home. Any ideas to the value of these items?

Those four astronauts apparently signed a number of items at that dinner or one just like it. Several items signed by them, including a nice Apollo envelope, sold in the last couple of years for $84 - $132. Your book, I would think, would be towards the upper end of that.

Thanks for your help, I though it might be more valuable, but it should make a good starter piece for my nephew.
