Hi All:
Has anyone visited Novaspace's Custom Signings page lately?
It states that Harrison Schmitt will be there for a signing in 2005.
Wow!

Here is a direct link to the page. Holy Schmitt is not enough. It also states that Jim Lovell and Micheal Collins will do some signings in 2005.

Happy New Year 2005.

Great news! I'm guessing that "I was walking on the moon one day" is going to be his most requested inscription.

Cheers,
Matt

767FO- That was exactly what I was thinking.

I will not doubt be a customer for one or two at that price.

Hi Everyone,

All items have to be into Novaspace by Jan. 31, or else there's a late fee.

The prices seem a bit steep for everything but a simple signature, it's a mail in signing only and I'll be sending a couple of pics.

Note that, per Novaspace, due to time constraints, this signing is only open to those who are invited via their mailing list. Visit Novaspace Galleries website to register.

And for those of us who did not get him before he stopped signing, Thank Goodness he is doing this signing at Nova Space.

Amen to that!

Bearing in mind that his signed WSS shots always sell for around $150+ and signed shots of him on the moon sell for anything from $200 to $350+ the base fee of $125 seems pretty reasonable. The fact that he signed for free in the past is irrelevant now.

I guess I am lucky. My father sent a request to Dr. Scmitt in April 2003. He wanted to give me some signed items as a gift when I returned from Iraq. I was home visiting for Christmas and I received the Business Suit Portrait back signed from Dr. Schmitt.

Hi Charles:
You did luck out by getting Schmitt through the mail recently, but then again you're a soldier doing some really tough work over there, so you truly deserve it. Very much. Enjoy! (By the way, cool dad you have there.)

Great news. I have several items that will be submitted for his autograph. His fees are reasonable. I believe that this is the 1st time he will charge for autographs. Dr. Schmitt was a gracious signer in person each of the three times that I met him. He signed two or three items each time and was a pleasure to talk with.

Just a reminder that Schmitt-and-Cernan-signed photos are still available from the Astronaut Scholarship group that does the AAC for $150---I assume Schmitt will also be in the lineup for the AAC in 2006 or 2007 since they're starting to run short of astronauts.
