Hi gang i thought i would just get an idea of what items people are taking to get signed at the show, i myself will be taking a couple of books Apollo the epic journey to the moon and Apollo by Alan Bean.
I will also purchase some photos at the event, but is anybody taking an item that is rare or strange something that no one else is thinking about, i look forward to your answers, also my get some new ideas.
Cheers Paul

I'm going to take some shuttle stuff for some of the Apollo astronauts: Stafford is on the Stafford-Covey RTF task group, Scott was director of Dryden during ALT.

The only other remotely unusual item is a Martin Marietta booklet, "A Nice Flying Machine," for McCandless.

I have this litho that I am on the edge of deciding whether to take or not. It is a tribute to the Golden Age of Test Flight. I have it signed by over 20 people so far. All in person and all for free.

It might be fun to add some of the Test Pilots at the show... However, it seems pointless given what some guys will charge to sign a multi-signed item. So, I am on the fence, do I add more sigs for money, or just limit it to in person people who would sign for free. As mentioned above, Dave Scott would be nice to add because of his work at Dryden, but his signature would cost twice as much as what I paid for the litho to begin with... decisions...

Okay, now that the show is shaping up a little bit more... I am thinking of bringing my Alan Bean "Reaching for the Stars" and getting the two Russians to sign it at the ASTP location... after all, they put the S in ASTP!

You know, I have a picture taken by Galileo on it’s Earth flyby that shows the Earth and Moon against a jet black background… that wouldn’t be bad signed by everybody in Silver Sharpie… Just another thought…

This show is going to be the event of all time… think of it all, the first man to walk in Space, the first man to fly about untethered in Space, somebody from each of the Apollo Lunar Landing Missions...

Jeez... I am getting dizzy just trying to figure out how many EVAs and rendezvous’ are represented by this crowd... is somebody good with numbers?

I just checked out your print...very nice! It's a tough question...to pay or not to pay? But I think in the long run, even though it'll cost you a few dollars now, you'll be happy to have those signatures on your print from the guys that'll be at the show. And remember the day will come when they may choose not to sign or won't be able to sign at any price.

So far I have decided to take, a betacloth flag, a betacloth meatball patch, an Apollo 12 sliding chart, an ALSEP Booklet, an ASTP Press Kit, and my Scott signed book.

No doubt that will change as we get nearer the date though !
