|This is an EXCEEDINGLY RARE item. It is an 8x10 Color reproduction of the Alan Bean painting, titled 'Conrad, Gordon and Bean, The Fantasy'. He called it 'The Fantasy' because it pictured Richard Gordon on the moon with both Bean and Conrad. Of course, history tells us that Gordon never walked on the moon. This piece was comissioned to be sold in the limited quantity of 500 (a copy of the contract is enclosed with the piece). However, it was first offered at the UACC annual convention in June of 1999, just shortly before Pete Conrad was killed in a motorcycle accident. JD Bardwell had the unique and rare opportunity to get this signed by all THREE astronauts. Less than 50 were signed at the time, and then Pete was killed. Thus, it might be the most rare piece signed by the entire Apollo XII crew. Get it while you can. RARE, RARE, RARE.|
