If anyone has never had Novaspace take pictures of an astronaut signing their item I can't stress enough how great of a job they do on it. I had it done on two items at the 2012 Collins signing and they had at least 25 photos of Collins signing, holding, wearing and acting ridiculous with my items. It's a great value.

Michael Collins was here signing Monday, March 3. It was the 45th anniversary of Apollo 9. Ironically, Jim McDivitt stopped in for a chat with Mike. "I hear there's a real astronaut here!" he said, bursting through the door.

The two talked for about an hour, about flying and generally caught up. We were most privileged to be in the same room.

Did you happen to take any photos of the signing (or meeting with McDivitt) for public consumption? I enjoyed reading the stories you took the time to write for many of the past events. Still read them from time to time. And the photos/videos are a treat as well.

Yeah, Rob shot some video. We haven't had the chance to look at it yet...

Received my Collins-signed Apollo 11 event cover today. It already had a Buzz Aldrin signature (purchased from a cS member), which I was able to forward to Astronaut Central in time for the signing. Kudos to Novaspace for excellent and fast service!

Are there any signing events/appearances by Michael Collins scheduled? Unfortunately, I missed this.

jonspace, Collins usually returns to Astronaut Central/Novaspace each Spring for a mail-in signing, so he'll probably be back in March 2015. Unfortunately, he doesn't do any other signing events, and extremely limited appearances.

Just received my item from the Collins signing and I'm blown away by the work Rob and the people at Novaspace did. This was my first mail in signing and I was unsure what to expect but they really delivered obtaining a signature for my unique piece.

Kudos to Novaspace and their team. I hope there is another signing in the near future.
