We require that all potential buyers read our 'FAQ and Terms of Sale' section, at the bottom of each listing, prior to purchase, offer or bid placement and inquiries.
* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * AS THE 50TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE APOLLO 11 MOON LANDING IS FAST APPROACHING, SPACEFLIGHT MISSIONS GROW FARTHER REACHING AND EVER BOLD, WHILE WE BEGIN TO EXPERIENCE A RENAISSANCE OF INTERNATIONAL INTEREST IN SPACEFLIGHT ENDEAVORS AND TECHNOLOGY. STILL, ONLY A FEW KNOW about the possibility of collecting such historically significant artifacts, as these from the Space Programs, but that is beginning to change, in light of these events.
Over time, spaceflight artifacts are increasingly difficult to acquire and the value of these rare collectibles is very likely to rise dramatically. If you are a collector that is new to the niche of spaceflight hardware and seeking to diversify your portfolio, this is an excellent way to accomplish that with a unique and sound investment. These are heirlooms that will inspire and be admired by many generations to come.
Thank you, and welcome to Space Mission Market!
