Neil Armstrong Autograph

In the first major auction of a Neil Armstrong autograph since his death, Nate Sanders Auctions saw a three-fold increase in the astronaut’s signature. As many collectors know, Mr. Armstrong signed freely — reportedly spending hours every day signing — up until the mid 1980’s with his autograph selling for (incredibly) around $8 – $12 each. Then, perhaps feeling discouraged about collectors cashing in on his signature, he first stopped signing more than one autograph per person — and then, as collectors found ways to trick Armstrong into signing more than one by using multiple names and addresses, he stopped signing altogether. Though he was well-known to local residents in his Ohio hometown — where he chose to live even after taking a weekend trip to the moon — some say he became a recluse to the rest of the world.

Just before his death, signed photos with inscriptions sold for $1,300 and ones without a dedication sold for $5,700. A simple Neil Armstrong autograph could expect to fetch about $700. At our auction on August 31, a Neil Armstrong autograph sold for $2,384.  Click on photo or captions beneath photo to link to items:

Ironically, though Mr. Armstrong understandably only wanted to sign for people who would own the piece themselves, the next generations of space enthusiasts have to rely on the inventory of autographs out there now. As all of us know, we would treasure anything once owned by the original moonwalker. Holding it in your hands immediately calls forth the curiosity and bravery of man’s attempt to harness the sky and the moons.

Whether or not we are so lucky as to own an original Neil Armstrong autograph item, always remember, as his family so poignantly put it, “the next time you walk outside on a clear night and see the moon smiling down at you, think of Neil Armstrong and give him a wink.”

I have a autographed photo of Neil Armstrong with a NASA stamp on the back. It’s made out to me, saying “TO JACKIE – ALL THE BEST”. I had no idea that it was so valuable and am curious as to it’s value.
