Gene Cernan is coming to Tucson in June for a private signing with Astronaut Central.

We just posted a revised fee table to our website, after some clarifications from Cernan's office.

He WILL sign philatelic/postal covers. He WILL sign Bean's "In the Beginning" and "Reaching for the Stars" art prints for an additional fee. He will NOT sign "Spaceshots" cards, but other trading cards are okay. And he'll inscribe "Last Man on the Moon" for free, if you request it on your order form.

Deadline for receiving orders is Monday, June 1.

Great News, for updates! Thanks...

But date and time inscriptions $50 - Wow! and $20 per word! Second wow!

The wiseacre in me wants to see someone have the mission inscription 'none' added, e.g. "Gene Cernan / none".

Hart, you'd be surprised how many people don't write anything at all on their order form, then wonder why the mission inscription wasn't added.

And if we showed the order forms to the astronauts, instead of summarizing the signing instructions for them, some of them would indeed ask if the customer wanted them to write "none".

How much is an added "Taurus Littrow, Dec 1972" on a panorama print? I don't know if it is part of a mission inscription or if the month and year are words or what?

A "mission inscription" is only the program name (e.g. "Mercury", "Gemini", "Apollo", or "STS"), mission number, and abbreviated crew position (e.g. Apollo XVII CDR or Gemini IX PLT or Apollo X CMP). "Taurus Littrow" will be 2 words (@ $20/word = $40). In this case, because your are only asking for month and year in the date, we will treat it as 2 words (@ $20/word = $40), instead of as a $50 date. If you asked for month, day, and year, then we would consider it to be a $50 date, instead of three words.

A hyphenated word, such as Taurus-Littrow, is considered one word... Taurus-Littrow Valley - that's two words.. just saying.

For purposes of all of our signings, a hyphenated word counts as two words.

Thanks, that answered my question. I have a replica moon boot and a Moonpans Short Crater panorama that I will probably send both... Ouch, my bank account.

Cernan flew his plane to Tucson early yesterday morning, signed everything, then flew back to Texas late afternoon, hoping there were no thunderstorms on the way. We'll start shipping items today. It'll take about two weeks to get everything out. We'll send email notices when items actually ship. Photos of Authenticity (POAs) will be emailed when ready, probably about a week. Our photographer is currently inspecting all of the photos, and retouching them, as necessary. Thanks for your patience.

Got my photo COAs from the Cernan signing. My item looks perfect and looks even better with Gene Cernan posing with it. Looking forward to receiving it. Thanks

All of the POAs have now been emailed to customers. We still have a few orders requiring shipping quotes or special packaging, that we'll take care of next week. Our thanks to everyone who participated in this signing.

I received my signed vintage NASA Apollo X Crew Litho along with my COA. Top quality shipping and service. The signature looks great, thanks!

Any idea if John Young or Tom Stafford will be available for future signings to complete my crew?

Young no longer signs, Stafford does occasionally. If I were you I'd keep an eye out to see if he's signing at this year's ASF space rendezvous.

Stafford was at the ASF's autograph show last year.
