This was the first time I have seen 12 moonwalkers on one item (it went for $17,000 plus the commission):

There are one or two out there which purport to be autographed by the 12 moonwalkers but which have dubious signatures on them. From the poor picture this looks good and with the unique mission inscriptions and no personalisation I'd say it was a good price.

I have a couple pictures of items signed by all 12 moonwalkers that I printed out over the years. But, I didn't write down who had them or what they sold for. Does anyone remember when, where, and for how much one was sold?

Moonpans sold a $1 bill signed by all 12 moonwalkers a year or 2 ago. I'm not sure what it sold for, but something in the range of $9,000 keeps popping in my head.

Personally, I'd much rather have the signatures on a photo than a dollar bill. While it may not be a one of a kind, it's definitely in a class by itself.
