I recently purchased an autographed photo of LBJ. It is inscribed to the memory of a doctor.

I did some research and the doctor is Dr. F. G. Hall of Duke University and whom geared his career to the national space program. Not only is it signed to the memory of an amazing individual but it was signed during LBJs presidency.

After my research I am amazed I own this piece I am just wondering what's it worth?

Dr. F. G. Hall must have made some impressive accomplishments, as there is a lab named after him at Duke. But as a collector of presidential autographs, I'd say that the photo is worth how much LBJ photos inscribed and signed as president usually are worth: several hundred dollars. For example, here is a photo taken in the Oval Office that sold for only $240, while here is one inscribed to a prominent general that sold for $630.

Based on the listing I just noticed, I think it would have been more accurate for you to have written "I just put it on eBay minutes ago, and I want to know how much money I can hope to get for it."

I see that you updated the listing on the 30th with "It has been valued at $600+" immediately after I provided the information in the post above.

collectSPACE members truly enjoy sharing opinions and advice, but we like for people do be honest about why they're asking for it.

Yes I listed it on eBay in hopes to make ends meet for now. I bought it a month ago or so and the research I did to find out who Dr. F.G. Hall and that it is much more than a LBJ signature. It still amazes me.

I honestly gave up on anyone answering me but you came through with some great news. Sorry I have offended you in some way but my bills and family are just a bit more important right now. I do want to thank you for information and wisdom in the signature. And yes that a piece of NASA history landed in my truly amazes me.
