Sheila Gibson Stoodley has an article in the Robb Report about the hobby and market for space memorabilia and artifacts.
Space memorabilia of a more traditional nature — autographs, medallions, and stamped rocket-flown envelopes, known as covers — abound on the market, and the best examples command strong prices. But the things that helped the astronauts reach the moon and come home safely are what hold special power for collectors and are the artifacts that climb into the six-figure realm at auction...
The article includes remarks by collectSPACE members Alan Lipkin, Howard Weinberger and Larry McGlynn (as well my own brief comment on shuttle-era artifacts).
