Buzz Aldrin's A6L spacesuit glove, worn by Aldrin in 1968 during training for the Apollo 11 mission. Made by International Latex Corp., the A6L spacesuit modified the existing A5L suit by adding an integrated thermal and micrometeroid cover layer. After the Apollo I fire, the A6L was further improved with fire-resistant capability, becoming the A7L which the astronauts wore during the Apollo missions.

Blue and black glove has an integrated label sewn into the glove specifying ''E. ALDRIN'' for size, with the date of ''4/68''. ''NASA'' is typed above the ILC manufacturer's name. Other information, such as Serial, Model and Contract Numbers are also typed in, with the Item line reading ''SPEC. CP 2001 / GLOVE ASSEMBLY / PRESSURE PGA LEFT / A6L-103000-09''. A brown velcro and metal strap at the base of the fingers allows for size adjustment. Glove stands on its hard base, designed to screw into the adjoining portion of the spacesuit. Measures 9'' tall x 4.5'' wide. A few loose strings and some wear to to the material covering the fingers, but overall in very good plus condition, excellent for display.
