International Space Station FGB (Functional Cargo Block) External Labels

From the personal collection of Sy Liebergot, Apollo EECOM

A - $110

                                                

 

The Russian built FGB was the first building block element of the International Space Station (ISS).  The external insulation of the FGB is a cloth-like material; consequently, the external equipment labels are a beta-like cloth and sewn on by stitching specialists.  

The labels being offered here are NOT replicas but rather from the actual backup set produced for that Russian component.  They are directly from the personal collection of Flight Controller Sy Liebergot who obtained them through his association with the ISS program.  Each is being offered for sale separately and will include a COA hand signed by Sy explaining their history, his connection to that program,  and attesting that they come from his personal collection. 

Click on thumbnail image below to see how these labels appear on the actual FGB module in space. 

These may represent the only ready for flight back up labels in existence for the Russian FGB.  Artifacts of this nature, associated with the International Space Station are difficult if not impossible to find.  Ideal for signing by any of the ISS Astronauts or just for display as is, they would make a super addition to any ISS collection.
