Item 2242 - Neil Armstrong Signed Photograph Catalog 588 (Jul 2020)

Back To Previous Page
(we are no longer accepting bids on this item)
Minimum Bid: $300.00
Sold Price: $1,442.50 (includes buyer's premium)


Extraordinary vintage glossy 8 x 10 close-up photo of Armstrong as a young pilot with the United States Navy, signed and inscribed in blue ballpoint, "To George, with best wishes, Neil Armstrong.” Reverse bears an "Official Navy Photograph" stamp, which credits the photo to George Franchois. In fine condition, with poor-to-moderate handwriting contrast, and a collector's notation in the bottom border. In 1947, at the age of 17, Armstrong began studying aeronautical engineering at Purdue University and earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Aeronautical Engineering in 1955. A call-up from the Navy interrupted his studies on January 26, 1949, which led to Armstrong's eventual promotion as a fully qualified naval aviator and then to his joining the National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics (NACA) in 1955. A magnificently rare and early signed portrait of history's first moonwalker.
