My father has huge collections of autograph in there collection he also has the Apollo 11 crew member, but I need to make sure whether the below autograph is real or it is signed by autopen. Can anybody help me.

The autographs are neither authentic or autopen; rather they are pre-prints — the signatures were printed with the emblem on the card (i.e. a copy).

These cards are well documented and were widely dispersed.

You can see another example here.

Provided that these cards are not particularly rare, and given the condition issues with yours, I would say that accompanied by the letter, $5 to $15 at auction.

All times are CT (US)
