Gemini Autograph

A Gemini autograph of one of the Gemini astronauts is worth over $750 if the Gemini autograph is from Neil Armstrong or Gus Grissom.  The living Gemini astronaut autographs are only worth a few hundred dollars each.  The key is to find Gemini autograph items where a bunch of the astronauts have signed in the 1960’s or a Gemini autograph on a certificate showing that a particular item had been flown on the Gemini flight.  Here are the Gemini autograph items that we at NateDSanders.com auctions have sold:

Gemini 3 Space-Flown $2 Bill with the Gemini Autograph of Gus Grissom & John Young on It– Mounted to a COA Also Signed by Grissom & Young

Gemini 3 space-flown two-dollar bill signed by Gus Grissom and John Young. The first pair of Americans ever in space sign the currency: ”Gus Grissom / GT-3” and ”John Young / 3-23-65” in red felt tip. Signed bill comes mounted to a certificate that reads in full: ”This is to certify that the currency with serial number A76270198A did as a matter of fact accompany ‘Gus’ Grissom & John Young on their three orbit flight, March 23, 1965, in the Gemini Space Craft ‘Molly Brown.’ Accomplishing the ‘Free World’s’ first two-manned space venture / [signed] Gus Grissom / John Young”. The signed bills were at the center of a prank, told in full in Russell Still’s book, ”Relics of the Space Race”; Grissom reportedly moved the bills from their hiding place behind the instrument panel and substituted play money so that when the launch supervisor in charge of the flown souvenirs went to retrieve them, he found the play money instead. The truth came out after a few weeks and the bills were given out to Cape Canaveral personnel. Series 1953C $2 bill is near fine and comes mounted to a 10” x 7.5” COA, also near fine, framed to an overall size of 11” x 8.5”.  Sold for $3,750.
