Sergei Zalyotin’s pair of flown Sokol KV-2 space suit gloves worn aboard the Soyuz TM-30 spacecraft as part of Mir EO-28, the final manned spaceflight to the Mir space station, both signed in black felt tip by Zalyotin. The gloves are marked on the inner wrist with a serial number, "ГП-7A-11Б-0970426," and printed in blue with Zalyotin’s initials in Cyrillic, "ЗСВ.” The gloves feature blue anodized aluminum wrist couplings designed to attach the suit, with each coupling marked on the interior: “ЛЕВDЕ, D48D136” and “ПРАВDЕ, D48D147.” In overall fine condition. Accompanied by a copy of a letter from Zalyotin affirming the flown status of these gloves, in addition to two color photos of Zalyotin, who has signed both in felt tip. Extremely attractive and highly displayable flown cosmonaut gloves, seldom offered as a pair.
