Roy Bridges was one of nine early shuttle astronauts to attend a special event back when I was in college. He is the only one that I was not able to get to sign my program that afternoon. Does anyone know if he still signs? If I send this item to him, what are the odds it will come back (of course I will include return postage, etc.)?

Roy Bridges is still a good and reliable signer.

With a special item like the one you have signed by the other astronauts, I would write Roy Bridges first and ask him whether he would sign it. Enclose a postcard for him to reply.

This does not guarantee you will get the item back, but it helps make it less likely your program will end up in the trash. I have used this approach successfully with other astronauts and have not lost anything in the process. Of course, always include return postage such as a stamped addressed priority mail envelope.

As these gents move around, I dropped him a note and asked if he'd sign my NF-104 items (yes he's one of the guys who flew the NF-104), since it was signed by a bunch of others.

He graciously responded that he would, and it was a very quick turnaround. The man's a star in addition to having 2 of them.
