Pilot Michael Collins
A collection of Apollo 11 and Neil Armstrong related goods are to serve as the centerpiece of Heritage Auction's Space Exploration Signature Auction coming to Dallas this November 2nd. In memory of his recent passing, the event will feature a cloth moon mission insignia flown on the moon and signed by the astronaut and American hero himself.
A trove of materials related to the late, great Neil Armstrong – including an amazing space-flown and moon-orbited Apollo 11 Crew-signed cover (estimate: $40,000+), originally from the Personal Collection of Mission Command Module Pilot Michael Collins, and just one of 214 such covers the astronauts signed – and the famous Apollo 11 Mission will be offered as the collective centerpiece in Heritage Auctions’ Nov. 2 Space Exploration Signature® Auction.
“When Armstrong passed away on Aug. 25 it signified the end to one of bravest, most humble and most well-loved Americans to have ever lived,” said Michael Riley, Senior Historian and Cataloger at Heritage Auctions. “Anything that he signed, or that is related to him is incredibly sought-after by collectors of all shapes and sizes. His passing has only intensified that interest and we expect to see these lots reflect that.”
