Mercury 7 Astronauts hand signed photo

 

Offered here is a very uncommon 11" x 14" image of the Mercury 7 Astronauts produced by McDonnell Aircraft Corporation.  It has been hand signed by all of the Mercury 7 in their vintage signature style.  While the photo is discolored from age and being on display, the signatures look as though they were just signed yesterday.  The dedication is: " To Sharon, Jill and Will Jr. from the Mercury Astronauts".  These are the family members of William H. Todd whose career in the aerospace industry spanned some of America's most pioneering aerospace programs including the P-51 Mustang, X-15, B-70, Mercury, Gemini, Apollo, Skylab and Space Shuttle programs.
