Mercury 7 and Apollo 14 astronaut and moonwalker, the first American to travel in space (1961). Item #44224
Color IPS, 7 3/4" X 8¼", n.p., n.y. Near fine. Color magazine photograph trimmed from the May 19, 1961 front cover of "Life" magazine. Candid half-length shot showing Shepard in blue polo shirt at home, smiling for the camera with a large pile of mail in his lap. In purple ballpoint across his short at lower right, he boldly inscribes and signs "To Donald Burnell / with best wishes -- / Alan B. Shepard Jr." Just a magazine portrait, but a handsome example from the height of his fame.
