Alan Shepard Autograph

[space_shepard.jpg]

Alan B. Shepard Jr. (1923 - 1998) was the first American in space (1961), and the fifth person to walk on the moon (1971). I met him at a celebrity golf tournament in Houston, Texas in 1981 and got this autograph, which is appropriate, since he was also the first person to play golf on the moon.
