Fred Haise signed the director's model from the HBO series "From the Earth to the Moon." It was a model of the full-size Apollo command module used in the series. The various opening were where cameras could video the interior. The HBO director used the model to visualize the actual frame. The model comes apart.

Thought I might share my Apollo 9 and 10 astronaut autograph collection.

I recently added this Kaiyodo StarTales model of Mir, autographed by Michael Foale, to my collection:

Leonov signed image of US LM and Russian LK. Are the relative sizes correct?

I haven’t seen any activity in this thread for a while so I thought I’d share. I was delighted to pick up a Swigert signed Sieger block for fifty bucks and a Harrison Schmitt signed Apollo 11 first day cover for fifteen bucks on eBay. Always nice to find a bargain!

I also got my Repoglee moon flights globe back from Charlie Duke a few weeks ago. He marked the landing site with an X and wrote "We walked here, Charlie Duke, Apollo 16 LMP, 1972." It’s taking pride of place in my space room!

Picked up an STS-71 launch crew (signed by seven) litho.

Covid has inevitably reduced opportunities to land in person signed pieces: how I am missing meeting up with the gang at Space Lectures! The pandemic has meant four events have now slipped by and a fifth next spring is looking increasingly doubtful.

But on a more positive note, I have been able to acquire recently a crew signed, STS-135 flown patch montage courtesy of a former NASA employee.

Janet posts on this forum and on occasion sells bits and pieces. She is a delight.

Agreed Rick, it’s sad to have so few in person opportunities these days so I find myself waiting in anticipation for the postman to come my door.

I'm so happy to see this thread revived! I love seeing everyone's items, and I hope we can all keep it going.

In recent weeks, I was able to upgrade several of my Apollo autographs. When I started collecting, I just wanted to obtain one autograph from each of them, and I wasn't concerned about the format or style. That goal still isn't quite finished. But as my collection continues, I've begun to upgrade from basic inexpensive autographs to more special ones. I never thought I'd need eight Bormans or five Beans, but here we are.

Rick I'm envious, a great flown patch montage.

It will complement your STS-125 one.

I also managed to score a few interesting signatures in my first year of collecting. So far, this has been the photo/canvas with the longest inscription, Fred Haise.

Thanks OWL: yourself no stranger to a flown patch presentation or two…😉

Despite searching online I have been unable to find another. They exist I know but seem few and far between.
