Moonwalker Autograph Lithograph Signed by All But One Sells for $4,061 at NateDSanders
A moonwalker autograph can range in value dramatically with first man on the moon, Neil Armstrong selling for the most and the moonwalkers who are still alive or just passed away recently selling for around $50 – $200. Back in the day, a moonwalker autograph was worth around $8 (not a typo) with all moonwalkers signing for free in the mail to those who requested a moonwalker autograph. In recent years, a moonwalker autograph can be as high as $400 for a Buzz Aldrin autograph on a photo at an autograph show although on the second hand market, he brings around $100 – $250. If the item signed has been flown to the moon, the price jumps dramatically with an Apollo 11 flag flown to the moon signed selling for around $60,000. Here are some of the basic moonwalker autograph items that we at NateDSanders.com Auctions have sold:
Huge Lithograph With all of the Moonwalker s Autograph Except One — Includes Three Deceased Members
Enormous signed 31” x 25” color lithograph of the twelve astronauts who have flown to the moon. The late Jim Irwin was the first to sign the print in 1986 and 10 other moonwalkers have added their autographs over the years. All six lunar landings are represented by the 11 moonwalkers who have signed this print: Buzz Aldrin, Pete Conrad, Alan Bean, Alan Shepard, Edgar Mitchell, Jim Irwin, Dave Scott, Charlie Duke, John Young, Gene Cernan and Jack Schmitt. The remaining moonwalker, Neil Armstrong is the only one who didn’t sign. Lithograph was painted by artist Ron Lewis, in an edition of 1,000, signed and numbered. Printed on acid-free, very heavy stock in pristine condition. Each portrait was done from the astronaut’s NASA white space suit portrait, and beside each bust is a small vignette of the astronaut in action (Conrad with Surveyor, Shepard’s chip shot, etc.). Three of the astronauts who signed, including the first man in space, Alan Shepard; the third man on the moon, Charles Conrad; and James Irwin, have passed away. Due to their deaths, hardly any material exists bearing these moonwalker autographs. Sold for $4,061.
