Any thoughts on this Apollo 11 crew signed cover?

(As always) it would be nice to see an enlargement, but looks good to me, as does the Ford. Nice piece.

I have been collecting the same cover with various autographs and even some of Florian's flown Apollo 11 fragments for years. I really want to buy it now but am a little nervous about spending this much via ebay. I am about 2 mouse clicks away from taking the gamble!

For comparison, Heritage Auctions sold a similarly (but not the same) signed cover from Ford's collection in 2008 for more than $14,000.

I am definitely not an expert but the Heritage one scares me more than this one. I definitely want it, but just can't decide for sure if it is good.

Well, crud. I made the mistake of sleeping on it and somebody else bought it. I have to know - was it real?

It sold in the last hour.

A bit of advice... If you "advertise" a good deal here, there is a strong chance someone will buy it up from under you. Presuming it is authentic, someone will flip that for a nice profit.

I am curious about the Gerald Ford connection. I have never heard he was an autograph collector. It strikes me as unusual that he would have multiples.

You did the right thing for you. If in doubt, don't click the mouse!

Although likely authentic, that's one ugly Aldrin signature.

Yeah, the Aldrin is what made me decide to sleep on it.
