ASE XX Congress Poster

These posters commemorate the annual Planetary Congresses of the Association of Space Explorers, the world's only international professional association of flown astronauts and cosmonauts. Bearing the authentic and original signatures of the astronauts and cosmonauts who attend each Congress, these unique and extremely rare items are part of a series of limited Collector's Edition posters that have been produced and signed at each ASE Congress since the Association was founded in 1985; some editions contain the signatures of well-known space travelers such as Charles “Pete” Conrad, Scott Carpenter, Charlie Duke, Buzz Aldrin, Jim Lovell, Tom Stafford, Alexei Leonov, Gherman Titov, Valentina Tereshkova and many others. Fewer than 180 of these posters were signed at each Congress; each attending astronaut and cosmonaut received a personal copy and a very limited number remain for sale.

Your poster comes with a certificate of authenticity, signed by one of the astronauts whose signature appears on that year's poster (2nd through 10th Congresses only) and a signature key which allows you to easily identify the individual autographs.

Poster dimensions are 22" wide by 33" tall (some slight variations).
