I have this stein that Buzz gave me and haven't seen anything like it - I'm wondering if it has any value. I have a picture of him giving it to me and it has a nice legitimate signature across the front.

Any info appreciated.

My guesstimate would be a couple hundred — maybe a little less or more. It's a nice but niche item so there may not be a huge market for it. That being said, there's always a market for authentic Aldrin autographs and a photo of Aldrin giving you the stein certainly doesn't hurt.

As a baseline for the stein itself (without signature), a recent example sold for $19 on eBay and another is currently available for $30 (Buy It Now). The same stein offered at $40 failed to sell.

So I would say the bulk of the value is in the autograph...
