Description

This unique lot is unlike other crew portraits — it was flown in space aboard the space station Mir and signed by the crew in orbit. Astronaut John Blaha, along with cosmonauts Valery Korzun and Aleksandr Kaleri, inscribed their names to this print while in Zero-G. The photo remained in Blaha's personal collection until its donation to ASF. Blaha was the third U.S. astronaut to serve aboard Mir.

The number STS79-349-023 is hand-written on the back of the 8" x 10" photo, which depicts the three crewmembers aboard the space station.

A certificate of authenticity signed by Astronaut Scholarship Foundation Executive Director Tammy Knowles accompanies this lot.

ASF reserves the right to disqualify the high bidder, to reject the high bid and to accept a bid from a lower bidder for any reason within their discretion, which shall be exercised in good faith.
