I was recently going through some of my father's old things and came across a very interesting collection that I never knew he had.
As a quick background, my dad was a military brat and grew up in Hawaii during the 60s. During that period, he was a very big NASA fan and sent personalized letters to a lot of the astronauts in 1964. In response, he received a lot of letters back from the astronauts that included signed photos. My father ended up storing all of these items in a binder and I have made a quick album to go ahead and display what was inside. 
I realize that the collaborative photo is just a copied picture, but I believe all of the rest are legitimate signatures and wanted to reach out to you to figure out what I should do with such a collection. I realize that both Grissom and See died in the 60s and therefor, their memorabilia is rather rare. I also know that Neil Armstrong's signature is worth quite a bit as well. I don't know if the fact that this is pre-apollo manned missions matters or not for some of these photos, but I figured I would reach out for some input from someone who actually knows a lot about the matter.
On top of all of the signed photos, he also has a collection of cards that have a lot more signatures from astronauts. 
Look forward to hearing back from what you guys think of the collection.
Best Regards,

The multi-signed photo is a preprint with facsimile signatures.

I didn't look at all the others carefully, but a quick browse and they appear to be Autopen machine signed signatures. 

A terrible fake in my opinion.

A bit blurry, but looks ok.

Which piece is a bit blurry? 

John Glenn
