My main thread was getting crowded, so I am starting this thread to display NASA and Star Wars items specifically. Hey, it's all space!!

Fred Haise, Apollo 13!

STS Shuttle Astronauts Scott Altman and Mike Foreman on a dual 3x5, and Betty Grissom (widow of Gus Grissom who passed away in 1967 in the Apollo 1 fire). Betty was a wonderful woman who passed shortly after signing this for us, a photo we took of the actual Liberty Bell 7, which Gus piloted in the early days of space exploration.

We have signed items from Apollo era personnel Fred Haise, Gene Kranz, Clancy Hatleberg, John Wolfram, and John Aaron. We also have several astronauts from the Shuttle era, Steve Bowen, Dick Covey, Guion Bluford, Scott Altman, Mike Foreman.

One of the most unique items we have is from Col. Joseph Kittinger, who jumped from the Stratosphere in 1960, making him the actual first man in space! The Mercury era cards from Brian (beachbum) look just awesome with these items as well!

We were at a yard sale early this fall, and I found a copy of the STL Globe Democrat newspaper from when the Apollo 11 astronauts came home, so for a dollar, I bought the paper and added some pages to the wall to round out the look from that awesome era!

Here are some Star Wars items, from the classic movies!

My first custom, James Earl Jones as Darth Vader, which I sold and paid for most of the rest of these!!

I finished this dual, which at the time I thought was not coming back! Ken Ralston signed and wrote a fun note of apology, saying he is sorry for the delay, life is CRAZY!

Some cards of various performers:

I was saddened recently to learn of the passing of the great Jeremy Bulloch, who portrayed the fantastic character Boba Fett. Jeremy signed through the mail and at conventions for decades, and was a wonderful person. Thankful we got these two customs back from him.

More recently, I created a few new customs:

This card is a custom cut signature card from Jennifer Hale, who has voiced many characters over the years!

Also made this custom 8x10 photo with the filmstrip effect for Tracey Eddon, who was Carrie Fisher's stunt double in Return of the Jedi and played several other roles, including doing stunts for Anthony Daniels as C3PO!

So I changed the yellow font to gray to match the rest of the lettering, and here is the photo, which she graciously signed in silver. LOVE the way it came out!!

Here are the original 2 custom cards I sent. Tracey kindly signed 2 of each!

And since she gave me extras, I made customs from customs!!
