Description


Jeff Hoffman's flown EVA comfort gloves carried on STS-61 and worn during three spacewalks for the repair of the Hubble Space Telescope, sealed in their original cleaning/maintenance plastic with NASA-JSC labels, identifying them as "Item Number: 0106-84906-04[R][HF]" and "Item Number: 0106-84906-03[L][HF]," and "S/N: 144." Affixed to the opposite side is a note to Hoffman by NASA employee Bill Maas, in full: "Jeff, These were your flight comfort gloves. We had to downgrade them to Class III. I tried to get quality to let us mark them as inconspicuous as possible. It has been a pleasure working with you. Good luck, Bill Maas." In fine condition. Comfort gloves were available for optional use with the Shuttle Extra-vehicular Mobility Unit (EMU) space suit gloves, and were designed to provide a comfortable layer of fabric against the hands and to aid in wicking perspiration.

Provenance: From the personal collection of Jeff Hoffman, and accompanied by a signed portrait and letter of provenance.
