Mercury seven astronauts autographs are very desirable as these are, of course, first seven astronauts, all who started out in NASA’s Mercury program. What makes these Mercury seven astronauts autographs rare and expensive is that they include Gus Grissom’s autograph. Grissom died young in the Apollo One fire and his autograph, although plentiful, is sought after and expensive. But, beware of many Gus Grissom autopen autographs being sold as real. An autopen is a machine signature and not personally signed. Autopens are either worthless or near worthless. Sadly, there is only one living members from the Mercury seven astronaut autographs and that is the most famous member, John Glenn.
