APOLLO MOONWALKERS

Possibly the most popular and discussed subject in the space autograph hobby are autographs of the twelve Apollo moonwalkers - the astronauts who walked on the moon on Apollos 11, 12, 14, 15, 16 and 17. And probably the most popular and desirable way to collect their autographs are on portraits of them taken in their Apollo white spacesuits (WSS). Complete autographed WSS sets are found in many collections and displayed on many Websites and the set I have shown here is a good but unremarkable representation of such a set. Many collectors desire unpersonalized portraits, with only an autograph and with possibly a mission inscription added by the astronaut. Four of the 12 autographed WSS's shown here also have personalizations added by the astronauts, with 8 having autographs without personalizations and some with mission inscriptions.

Besides white spacesuit portraits autographed by the 12 moonwalkers, there are several other good ways to put together a set of moonwalker autographs: Autographed photos of each astronaut on the moon (also shown here); Autographed business suit portraits; signed personal letters (also shown here); individually autographed space covers for each moonwalker's mission (also shown here); signed index cards; and even a mixed set of various types of items (portraits, covers, cards, etc.) is very possible and would be the easiest and cheapest way to acquire a set of moonwalker autographs. So even today, over 40 years after the last moonlanding, it is still possible to find and assemble a set of items autographed by each of the 12 men who walked on the moon.
