    How Much Would You Have To Spend To Get Buzz Aldrin’s Jacket From First Ever Trip To Moon?

    Almost 53 years ago, Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin became the very first people to step foot on the moon. It was an iconic, never-seen-before moment in the history of the world. The historic moment is about to be a part of an auction!

    Aldrin, who was the second person to walk on the moon after Neil Armstrong, is auctioning some of his artifacts from both the Gemini XII and Apollo 11 missions. The auction will take place in the month of July and if you want the jacket he wore during his first trip to the moon, you will have to spend big bucks.

    Aldrin’s personal collection will be auctioned off at Sotheby’s. The auction house wrote on its website, “Sotheby’s is proud to present an array of items from legendary Apollo 11 Astronaut Buzz Aldrin.” The website also detailed the items that will be auctioned, “The items include pieces which were instrumental in the Apollo 11 mission, storied ephemera from Buzz’s time in space, and clothing worn on lunar missions.”

    Among the list is Aldrin’s jacket, the one he wore on his journey to the moon. The ‘Inflight Coverall Jacket’ serial number 1039, will begin auctioning at the estimated value of some $1 million to $2 million. And, the amount is expected to go higher.

    A ‘Go Army, Beat Navy’ banner Aldrin brought on his Gemini XII spacewalk, a flown lunar surface checklist, and flight plan pages are also among the other things that will be auctioned.

    Aldrin Feels “No Dream Is Too High”

    In July 1969, Aldrin, Neil Armstrong and Mike Collins took off to the moon, the natural satellite of Earth, as a part of NASA’s Apollo 11 missions. Collins was the commute pilot who stayed in the orbit meanwhile Armstrong and Aldrin walked the moon.

    In his 2016 memoir, Buzz Aldrin said, “One truth I have discovered for sure: When you believe that all things are possible and you will work hard to accomplish your goals, you can achieve the next ‘impossible’ dream. No dream is too high!” Aldrin remains from the Apollo 11 mission as Armstrong passed away in 2012 and Collins in 2021.
