Michael Collins Signing at Novaspace Gallery, March 2004

Michael Collins Signing at Novaspace Gallery, March 2004

This is certainly good news for space autograph fans!

General Collins is a very reclusive figure and prefers to avoid public appearances and autograph signings. So, this is a real coup for NovaSpace owner Kim Poor.

Certainly it is pricey, but not unreasonable considering what many more common (and less accomplished) astronauts tend to charge.

My dilemma is this....

I could have him sign an Apollo 11 crew photo and then add Buzz Aldrin later (who signs frequently for a large fee). Then, I could hope and pray that someday I have the opportunity to get Neil Armstrong to complete the photo. The odds of this happening are very, very slim, but the payoff is huge.

The downside is that I end up with an Apollo 11 crew photo with only 2 of the 3 signatures, and in autograph collecting, an incomplete item is not very desirable.
