I think the Sky At Night Magazine should buy the items and offer them as a prize! If you need a someone to set the question....... he he.

Just a suggestion.

Nice idea. I think it would probably wipe out our entire profit for the year though!

It will be interesting to see just how much these items do go for. Looking at online prices for anything that has flown in space, I suspect these Apollo items will go for a huge amount. Maybe NASA should have kept more items from their early days to sell now in order to raise a bit of cash!!!
