Appolo 11 Signed Moon Landing NY Times Headlines Rare NASA Collection at Goldin Auctions

The 20th century was unmatched in terms of advancements in science. Landing on the moon and the theory of relativity lead the way in that department and we are proud to offer artifacts in relation to these enormous feats. An Autographed New York Times by the Apollo 11 team and a letter written shortly after World War II by Albert Einstein showing his humorous side in reference to his relationship with God and an invite to attend Rosh Hashanah Services on 9/26/46 are up for bids in the Goldin Auctions 2019 October Legends Auction now through October 19th at GoldinAuctions.com.

This iconic edition of “The Times” reads “MEN WALK ON MOON” with the subhead “Astronauts Land on Plain; Collect Rocks, Plant Flag”. It hangs in restaurants, bars, offices, and museums around the world and this is a once in a lifetime chance to own an original copy penned by the legendary crew. Although 50 years old, the newspaper is in very good condition and will be the prize of any collection of historically significant memorabilia.

Content is everything in the collectibles world when it comes to letters and Einstein certainly brings his “A Game” in this case. Dated September 24, 1946, Einstein has written, “Thank you very much for your kind invitation. Despite being something like a Jewish saint I have been absent from a synagogue so long that I am afraid God would not recognize me and if He would it would be worse.” He then signed “A. Einstein” in black pen. An Einstein letter regarding God and Judaism are of exceeding rarity and are highly desirable.

“There are only a handful of people and events over the last century that can be referred to as iconic.” said Ken Goldin, Founder of Goldin Auctions. “Not many items blow me away after a lifetime in this business but a letter from Einstein discussing his faith and a signed New York Times Man on The Moon edition are items to behold. We are looking forward to seeing them go to the right collectors who will recognize their worth and historical significance.”
