When I was a boy in th 70's, my Mom signed me up for a thing where I got monthly books and stuff about space. One thing I received was an 8x10 photo of all 3 Apollo 11 astronauts with autographs. The photograph itself appears to be an official NASA issue. The NASA logo and a description of the picture is on the back. How to I authenticate these autographs?

You'll need to post it here or use an online service ... hope for your sake it's legit, but the chances are strong it will be a crew autopen.

The Apollo 11 autographs shown above are machine generated Autopen signatures.

I have the same picture from the 70's with the same autographs - Sorry, but autopen.

Still a good thing though, autopen or not.

Question though, isn't that the pic where Buzz is sitting a bunch if phone books?

I believe you are thinking of Fred Haise in the Apollo 13 crew portrait.
