BUZZ ALDRIN JR.
Aldrin signed this matted color photo of him on the lunar surface next to an American flag "A grateful American at Tranquility Base". This 8x10 photo has been matted out to 13x16.
Inscribed photograph signed "To Pat Patterson/A grateful American at Tranquility Base/Buzz Aldrin". Color, 12¾x15¾ white-and-gold matte with 7¾x10¼ image. With 2½x1 nameplate, in full: "Apollo 11 Moon Walk/ July 20th 1969". Aldrin is pictured in this photo standing on the lunar surface and standing next to an American flag. Aldrin, born Eugene Aldrin, Jr. in Montclair, New Jersey in 1930, was a 1951 West Point graduate who flew 66 missions in Korea, winning the Distinguished Flying Cross. He flew F-100s in Germany before persuading the Air Force to send him to M. I. T. for a doctorate. Although he was turned down for the astronaut program in 1962, Aldrin was later aboard one Gemini mission (Gemini 12), and became a close friend of astronaut Ed White, one of the Apollo I astronauts who died in a launch pad fire. Aldrin and Apollo 11 Commander Neil Armstrong left the patch from that ill-fated mission on the surface of the Moon. During the Apollo 11 mission, Aldrin had piloted the Lunar Excursion Module Eagle and became the second man to walk on the Moon (July 20, 1969). Not matted in Gallery of History style. Photo is lightly spotted. Mount is lightly toned and stained. Worn and rounded corners. Paper loss near lower left corner. Tape remnants along lower edge. Otherwise in fine condition.
