Yuri Gagarin Signed Bay of Pigs Anniversary Card  & Vintage Space Photos

Yuri Gagarin Signed Bay of Pigs Anniversary Card & Vintage Space Photos

From a period of political conflict and pressure came these vintage photos, 30 altogether (ranging in size 4x7”-6.5x9”), including Neil Armstrong, Michaels Collins, Yuri Gagarin with Cuban President Dortico (a promotion of the Cuban-Russian Friendly Society, 1964), & Valentina Tereshkova (Russian cosmonaut). The JFK administration was put to the test during this time of the “Communist threat”, especially following the failed Bay of Pigs invasion. Bay of Pigs anniversary card, signed by Yuri Gagarin & I. Baskakova celebrates the 4th anniversary of the “glorious victory of the Cuban people in Playa Giron”. Finally an 11x14” (several creases to top of photo) of Yuri Romanenko (USSR) with Arnaldo Tamayo Mendez (the first black man in outerspace). EX overall. Contrast from extremely sharp to good.
