Valentina Tereshkova autograph paper cosmonaut first woman to travel into space:
Valentina Tereshkova signature in blue ink pen on a 3 ½” x 5” white piece of paper. Her name is typed at the top, and a stamp with her image is affixed beneath the signature. The condition is good except the card has a small tear on the bottom, not affecting the signature. This is a desirable item from the first woman to travel into space, decades before American Sally Ride flew on the Space Shuttle. This is one of the cherries of my collection!
This comes from my personal collection, back when I was active in the world of autograph collecting. There was a time when I was an Autograph Collecting Superfreak. I created a few Guides on autograph authenticity. I wrote articles for The Pen and Quill, Autograph Collector, The Autograph Review, and The Autograph Collectors Magazine. I published my own newsletters Autograph Research, Celebrity Home Address Newsletter, and Space Autograph News. I wrote the book Space Autograph Price Guide, something the astronauts bought to keep track of their values. I was quoted in sources as diverse as Playboy Magazine and The American Journalism Review. I got recognized for my contributions to the Star Trek autograph book published by the UACC many years ago. I had a lot of fun in that hobby. Now I'm selling off my favorite autographs to finance new adventures. Thanks for reading my listing!
