This is a hand signed photograph 6.5" x 3.25" by the retired American Astronaut who was the Commander of Apollo 8 the 1st Mission to fly round the Moon along with Jim Lovell and Bill Anders. This has been in my personal collection since I wrote to him in the early 1980's c/o Eastern Airlines.
Frank Frederick Borman, II (born March 14, 1928) is a retired NASA astronaut, best remembered as the Commander of Apollo 8, the first mission to fly around the Moon, making him, along with crew mates Jim Lovell and Bill Anders, the first of only 24 humans to do so. Before flying on Apollo, he set a fourteen-day spaceflight endurance record on Gemini 7, and also served on the NASA review board which investigated the Apollo 1 fire. After leaving NASA, he was the chief executive officer (CEO) of Eastern Air Lines from 1975 to 1986. Borman is a recipient of the Congressional Space Medal of Honor. In the HBO miniseries From the Earth to the Moon, Borman was played by David Andrews.
