SIGNINGS AND EVENTS
Buzz Aldrin Signing - June 2010
Apollo 11 moonwalker Buzz Aldrin will sign your mailed-in items at ASTRONAUT CENTRAL in early June 2010.
Buzz Aldrin's autograph is not inexpensive, but, as a member of the first moonlanding team, his place in history is assured. He raised his prices in anticipation of last year's 40th anniversary, and the demand was still unabated. If you need an Aldrin in your collection, best get it soon, before prices go up again.
It's easy! And you'll save money. Simply decide what and how you want your item signed, fill in the order blank and send it to us by the deadline, and we'll promptly return your goods with a fresh, authentic signature and a Certificate of Authenticity.
This is not a public event, mailed-in memorabilia only. Please read rules below.
