I've started to document my collection on a photo-sharing website. I still have quite a bit to add but I thought the members might like to see what I've done so far.

I hope you enjoy.

One heck of a collection you have there Sir..

Whats the background on the "Apollo Command Module Hat" - part of an actual Apex cover?

Thanks guys. I'm glad you liked it. Yes, that's 1/2 of the apex cover.

Simply extraordinary. Joe has got dozens of letters (many handwritten), and photographs with paragraph-long inscriptions- all of them written/inscribed to him and his family! I liked how some of the letters from 1969-1970 are from astronauts complimenting you for the collection you had already built.

I have been fortunate enough to see Joe's museum in-person on a few occasions and it is simply extraordinary... as is the man behind it.

Great job with the website, Joe!

Joe, it is good to see you putting some of your most amazing collection up on the web for people to see.

I, too, have had the pleasure of seeing Joe's collection and it is a wonderful representation of a person's life experience in following the space program.

Congrats Joe. I have your first book and I really enjoyed reading it. I'll have to check out your children's book next. Thanks for sharing so much on line now.

It's nice to take a virtual tour of a private space museum with some different or unusual focal points. The correspondence sections are especially interesting. Great job!
