Top 10 Space sales: RR Auction had a wonderful 2017, with three auctions focusing on space exploration. We got to work with great people like moonwalker Dave Scott, NASA engineer Dan Schaiewitz, “Meteorite Man” Geoff Notkin, the family of Bill Lende (a lifelong collector of space memorabilia), other private collectors, and more.
We’re proud of the record-setting – and in some cases, record-shattering – results we achieved for our consignors. Here are our “out of this world” Top 10 Space sales (click image to enlarge):
