With THOMAS P. STAFFORD'S signed provenance letter, reading: "The Gemini envelope displayed below came from my personal collection. The envelope was postmarked on the launch date of the last manned flight, Gemini 12 – November 11, 1966. This envelope was signed by Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin, Charles Conrad, and Gordon Cooper during a gathering at my Seabrook, Texas residence. Gemini was a fast paced, dynamic program where the NASA and Industry team launched ten manned spacecraft in just 21 months. I was privileged to fly two of these missions, Gemini 6 and Gemini 9. Neil, Buzz and Charles (Pete) would all later walk on the moon during the Apollo Program, with Neil having the honor of being the first man to step onto the lunar surface."
SIGNED by NEIL ARMSTRONG, BUZZ ALDRIN, CHARLES CONRAD, and GORDON COOPER.
