Did you send your request to Leonov? If so, where did you find Russian stamps to send for the return shipment? I've still not had any success in finding a source.

After talking with a couple co-workers who have mailed packages to Russia and heard about some of the problems they've encountered, I gave up for the time being. I think I may just try to find a decent signed Leonov photo for sale at some point, but mailing him something is on hold for the time being.

I've had good luck in getting signed photos returned from both Valentina Tereshkova and Valery Bykovsky (both inscribed to my son) in the past six months, so I'm inclined to give it a go with Leonov. If I can find a way to get some Russian stamps, that is.

Where do you get good quality pictures of the cosmonauts? I've done some research on the web and also in this board, but can't find a good source.

Right now I need a good pictures of Toktar Aubakirov (Soyuz TM-13). Can anybody please help me out?

Sometimes Wikipedia has some good high res photos if you look up a cosmonaut or astronaut by name or mission. You can also try SpaceFacts.de. I've found a few good photos that I couldn't find in high enough resolution elsewhere.

And sometimes I just Google search for "high resolution photos" of whatever person or mission I'm looking for. Most of what comes up is not high res, but sometimes you get lucky.
