Any opinion on authenticity of each of the Mercury 7 autographs on the book "The Astronauts: The Story of Project Mercury" at stickelautographs.com: lot 55 in the current auction.
Opinion as to value?

Just my opinion, but all of the original 7 look "vintage" good to me.

I would second Ken's assessment that these are indeed genuine autographs of the 7 Mercury astronauts. As to value, a guess would be in the $2,000 to $2,500 range depending on the condition of the book and whether it is first edition (which this is not).

Wondering about lots 6 and 7 in this auction. The Apollo 11 cover looks like it was signed by the same person.
