Send your space memorabilia on an epic journey to be signed by legendary Gemini and Apollo astronaut James Lovell!

A portion of the proceeds will benefit ASF’s mission of providing scholarships to college students pursuing degrees in science and technology.
Send in your artifacts, covers, models, photos, flown items – just about anything that can be mailed – or choose from one of several Lovell portraits from the Astronaut Store for this Space Legend to autograph!

Once received, your item will be logged, tagged and stored in a secure location until the signing. All items must be accompanied by the ASF Order Form and Item Description Form and reach the ASF office no later than November 12.
A portion of the proceeds will benefit ASF’s mission of providing scholarships to exceptional college students pursuing degrees in science and technology.

Lovell was selected as part of the NASA Astronaut Group 2 in 1962. Lovell served as Pilot of Gemini 7 and Command Pilot of Gemini 12. This experience led him to become Command Module Pilot of Apollo 8, man’s maiden voyage to the Moon. Lovell was then slated to crew Apollo 14, but after a switch, he became Commander of the famous Apollo 13 mission. Lovell’s heroic leadership in the face of potential disaster made him a legend in the history of human spaceflight. Lovell was inducted into the U.S. Astronaut Hall of Fame in 1993, and currently serves as ASF Chairman Emeritus.
