My cousin, Joe Rebokus, a suit tech from David Clark Co., used to talk to me about Joe Schmitt a lot.

Fair skies, Joe...

The New York Times published an obituary for Joe Schmitt on Saturday (Oct. 7):
Mr. Schmitt accumulated an enviable collection of mementos, including a medal with Mr. Schmitt’s initials on it that Glenn gave him after taking it with him into space.

He also made a game-show appearance: He was a mystery challenger on “What’s My Line?” in May 1963, just days after he had suited up Gordon Cooper for the final Mercury mission. (The celebrity panel surmised that he was part of the space program but failed to guess his role.)

Joe Schmitt was featured and named on a Topps bubblegum trading card as part of the 1963 collector set titled Astronauts 3-D. This card pictures him working with Gus Grissom. Very rarely were non-astronauts actually identified on space related trading cards back then.
