I wonder to know who is the best contact at NASA Lyndon B. Johnson Space Center to get official individuals/crew autographed photographs?

There seems to be many contacts and I'm trying to figure out which is the best one to contact by letter/emails.

Write to the crews/astronaut involved. It's still the best way to obtain a real autograph. If you try to contact some central authority you're most likely to end up with an autopen.

I was wondering, has anyone had success in obtaining astronaut autographs (not autopens) from faxing the Johnson Space Center? I was thinking of using this method if it's "more preferred" than snail mail.

I was wondering which method of requesting signed portraits through the Astronaut Office has better results — sending the fax or actually mailing the letter? Thanks!

I have in the past usually sent a letter to the astronaut. I'm sure a fax would also be fine, I'm just old-fashioned!
