I recently picked up a photo signed by both Glenn and Armstrong that got me thinking...
  1. Did Shepard ever meet Gagarin and are there any photos together?

  2. Has anyone seen a Glenn/Shepard/Armstrong combination photo (the three US "firsts")?

  3. Are there any photos of Gagarin with other early NASA astronauts?

Your first and third questions are answered in the 2006 topic, Did Yuri Gagarin ever meet a US astronaut?
