I found this John Young signed photo over Christmas in my folks' attic. Having gone to elementary school in Titusville, Fl, I remember countless "moon shots" and outings to Cape Canaveral. As I recall, this photo adorned my room when I was a kid, prized as it was signed at school during a "show and tell." Between NASA and Johnny "Tarzan" Weissmuller living down the street, what a cool place to grow up. Hoping these pictures will post, I'm curious to whether there's any collector value to something like this?

There's definitely value to it. The signature is faded a bit. I'd say anywhere between $200-$300. It would be a little more if it were perfect. I think the high cost of adding the other two keeps things like this down in price.

With its back story and personal meaning, it'll be worth more than hundreds to keep or pass along to any heirs... Hope it stays with you!
