Mercury Seven Astron - This spectacular item is an 11x14 b/w original Life Magazine photograph of the original seven Mercury Astronauts in their street clothes with the capsule. The photograph is inscribed, possibly by Gordon Cooper. The photo is tipped to a larger sheet and at the very top, there is a light crease. It has been signed by Walter Schirra (1923-2007), John Glenn (1921-2016), Deke Slayton (1924-2003), Gus Grissom (1926-1967), Alan B. Shepard (1923-1998), Scott Carpenter (1925-2010) and Gordon Cooper (1927-2004). On the verso of the photograph is the date February 9, 1962 with the stamp, 'Life Photo' by Ralph Morse (1917-2014) who was the world famous photographer who shot some of the most widely seen pictures of World War II and the Space Program. This item has been professionally double matted with acid free materials to the overall size of 14x18 and it is ready to frame. It also comes with a PSA/DNA Letter of Authenticity.
