Consider this a space autograph. During WWII he worked at the Philadelphia Naval Yard with a couple of pals named Isaac Asimov and Robert Heinlein.

I recently visited Space Center Houston and did the Lunch with An Astronaut thing with Jerry Ross. He signed this for me.

For a continuous donation to the Infinity Science Center and with Mr. Haise attending an event here in Syracuse, I was able to have him sign my "Free Enterprise" by Mike Machat, which highlights the first ALT flight without the tailcone commanded by Joe Engle. I figured it wouldn't hurt to have Mr. Haise add his signature to this piece.

Here we are in my office with the print. Also note the framed print I have of the Buran space shuttle.

Here's a Polaroid from the Ed White II collection. It's a "joke" shot of the prime and backup crew of Gemini 7. Given that it is a Polaroid owned by Ed White II, I did not want to have signatures placed on the picture, but had the three remaining astronauts sign the reverse of the picture.

I never knew that "Suggs" from the band "Madness" flew with Jim Lovell!

What comments did Frank Borman, Jim Lovell and Michael Collins say about the photo?

Borman and Collins I had sign via Novaspace, so I didn't talk to them about the picture. Lovell I had sign at the very first space convention I had ever gone to (the 2010 ASF if I remember properly), and he was the first astronaut I had sign something, so I was TOTALLY STAR STRUCK. I remember him laughing about the picture but that is about it.

Over the years, I've had plenty of other pictures signed that I've got good memories of what the astronauts said about them, but nothing significant for this one.

I had this same picture signed in 2016. Lovell was very taken by it and stated that he was disappointed that he didn't get a funnier hat. Michael Collins mentioned he was wearing Dee O'Hara's hat but I'm not sure if that's true or not. Neither knew a specific explanation behind the photo. I asked Richard Gordon about the Gemini 8 photo that is very similar. He said "I have no idea why we did that but I bet it had something to do with him" and pointed to Conrad.

My interpretation was that the 7 crew probably started with White as I've seen him being silly in a few pictures. Perhaps the 8 crew and backup photo was taken the same day?

While mine is the original Polaroid picture, I know that the White family sold copies of the picture (I assume 8" X 10" prints?) sometime before they sold the Polaroid. It's nice to know that a fellow cS member has one.

Here is a copy I've got of the GT-8 prime and backup crews that was signed by Dick Gordon.

My Gemini 8 crew is a cheap copy but it does have Mr. Armstrong thankfully. My Gemini 7 is a canvas print. Love these two photos!

Are Armstrong and White wearing the same item as a hat in each picture? What is it?

In my opinion a light fitting or shade. Perhaps off a photographers lamp.

Had a surprise when I got home from the Christmas holidays. A signed photo from K. Megan McArthur. Can't remember requesting it so it must have been quite a while ago.

I just began collecting autographs in the past year, bad timing when I look at prices from just a decade ago! I have found some nice deals though and it has been a lot of fun. For now I am focusing on my favorite astronauts and images.

I was just looking at my collection and just found a Cernan signed photo that I forgot I had. A couple of years ago I met Gene Cernan and asked him to sign a copy of his most recognizable photo. I wanted him to write something unusual so I asked him to include the following "last Apollo astronaut to walk in the moon." I love it and it will stand the time even when another future astronaut sets foot on the moon.

At 2016 Spacefest, Gene Cernan signed Alan Bean's "The Last Man on the Moon" giclee canvas (#21/95). He signed it:
Too Beautiful...
Gene Cernan
Apollo 17 CDR
Last Man on the Moon
Got pictures and video of the signing. Also got a good photo of Alan Bean with the signed giclee.

Got to meet Norm Thagard at Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex yesterday and had three items signed. My 1/72 STS-7 Challenger model, the KSCVC tourist photo, and his signature completed my STS-7 crew litho.

In 2009, I was fortunate to witness the launch of STS-125 from the KSC Press Site. Ever since, I have wanted to acquire an item flown aboard that mission and recently I was able to complete that ambition. The fact the piece has been signed by the entire crew was a bonus. The astronaut signed COA is secured to the back of the frame.

I saw Duane "Digger" Carey give a talk in St. Paul, MN tonight. Great talk, by the way. Afterwards, he signed my lithograph. He must have realized after signing that the ultra-fine Sharpie he was using wasn't the greatest, because he switched to a standard fine tip to write the date.

A classic shot of Charlie and a great addition to your collection.

If the framing is permanent, might I suggest a matte of some sort... just to keep the surface of the image away from the "glazing" material? I have heard anecdotally of metallic signatures sticking to the glass over time.

While we were in Titusville for the Falcon Heavy launch we hit the consignment shops in the area. In doing that we found this print for United Space Alliance.

There is some light printing that speaks to a "new era in Space Shuttle Operations." The far right signature is Glynn Lunney, USA's Vice President. The one on the left is Jim (James) Adamson, STS-28 and STS-43 mission specialist and the first COO of United Space Alliance. Finally, the middle is Kent M. Black, the first CEO of United Space Alliance.
