STS-9 Crew – Signed Covers, Set of 3
SIGNED BY THE ENTIRE STS-9 CREW, INCLUDING JOHN YOUNG AND OWEN GARRIOTT!
Set of three postal covers, two affixed with Space Shuttle program emblem stickers, all postmarked on STS-9’s launch date of Nov 28, 1983 at Kennedy Space Center. First is signed by mission commander John Young and pilot Brewster Shaw. Second is signed by mission specialists Owen Garriott and Robert Parker. Third is signed by payload specialists Byron Lichtenberg and Ulf Merbold.
Note: On the third cover, there is no sticker, Byron’s printed first name is misspelled, and these two astronauts were payload specialists, even though the printed header says mission specialist.
