Description: Exceptional autographed Russian space First Day Cover commemorating the 21st anniversary of the Soviet space program and the historic flight of Yuri Gagarin. Measures 4.75 x 7.5 inches and postmarked on April 12, 1982. Includes the crew of Soyuz T - 4, signed by cosmonauts Vladimir Kovalyonok and Viktor Savinykh. Additionally signed by Andrian Nikolayev (cosmonaut #3 and the 2nd man in space), Yuri Malyshev, Yevgeny Khrunov, Viktor Gorbatko, Vladimir Dzhanibekov, and Vietnamese cosmonaut Pham Tuam. Near fine condition.

Comments: Soyuz T - 4 was the 14th expedition to Salyut 6. Docking was delayed after the on-board Argon computer determined it would occur outside the radio range. In mid-May, both cosmonauts replaced the Soyuz T - 4 probes with a Salyut drogue, an experiment to determine if the vessel could act as a rescue vehicle in the event that an approaching Soyuz craft could not return to Earth.

I want to thank you for your excellent service. I telephoned to inquire about the availability of a book this past Wednesday morning. Michele informed me it was available and took my order at about 11 AM EST. The next day when I got home from work, I was astounded to find that the book had been delivered in the early afternoon -- less than 30 hours after the order. Now, I know that UPS deserves some credit, but such fast delivery would not have occurred if Michele (and perhaps others) had not worked extremely efficiently. The book was well packed and fully meets my expectations, and Michele even got my name right! You have demonstrated a level of service I hope all merchants would meet. Thanks again. - Guy Hasegawa
