Lot 2: Glenn Signed Glossy Photo

This glossy photo print bears the signature of Mercury 7 astronaut John Glenn, who also added "Best regards-."

This 8" x 10" color print captures Glenn as he enters the Friendship 7 spacecraft during pre-launch preparations on February 20, 1962. The Atlas launch vehicle lifted the spacecraft into orbit for a three-orbit mission lasting 4 hours, 55 minutes, and 23 seconds. Glenn and his spacecraft were recovered by the destroyer Noa just 21 minutes after landing in the Atlantic near Grand Turk Island, to successfully complete the nation's first manned orbital flight.

As one of the founders of the Astronaut Scholarship Foundation, Glenn has played an integral role in guiding the Foundation over the last three decades.

The photo has been matted and framed, using archival methods, alongside a contemporary Friendship 7 mission patch; the final presentation measures approximately 13.25" x 14". It is accompanied by a certificate of authenticity signed by Astronaut Scholarship Foundation Executive Director Tammy Knowles.
