Impressive collection of 51 items signed by dozens of cosmonauts, predominately consisting of philatelic covers plus a few signed cards, many multi-signed, dating from the 1960s to 1990s. The wonderful collection includes the signatures of many of the greatest heroes of the Soviet space program, including Gherman Titov (second manned orbital flight), Valentina Tereshkova (first woman in space), Georgy Shonin (651 total days in space), Vladimir Komarov (first space death), Alexei Leonov (first spacewalker), and dozens of others, many in multiple examples. Of the early cosmonauts, only Gagarin, as well as Patsayev and Dobrovolsky (both killed in the Soyuz 11 disaster), are absent. Five of the postal covers were flown in space, aboard Soyuz 28, 37, 39, 40 (all to the Salyut 6 space station) and TM-18 (to Mir). In overall fine condition.
