Apollo 8 Flown
Apollo 8 flown items are considered rare and expensive mainly because the crew included elusive astronaut William “Bill” Anders whose autographs and items are worth good money. We have sold two Apollo 8 flown items before for substantial amounts. Here are the descriptions, pictures and prices:
Jack Swigert’s rare Apollo 8 Robbins Medal flown aboard the spacecraft during the 1968 mission. The historic Apollo 8 mission was the first human spaceflight to leave Earth’s orbit.
