Catalogue Note

SIGNED by CHARLES CONRAD, DICK GORDON, and ALAN BEAN prior to their Apollo 12 lunar landing mission.

Displayed with CHARLES CONRAD’s provenance TYPED CARD SIGNED in which he describes the story of this cover: "This Apollo XII crew cover was signed by the entire Apollo XII crew just days before our launch on November 14, 1969. The set of covers were originally planned to be flown on our flight to the moon. However, we collectively agreed not to fly them to avoid favoritism due to multiple requests to fly a variety of covers in our personal preference kits. This cover is one from my personal collection. CHARLES CONRAD, Jr., CDR Apollo XII."
