Signed Russian Space First Day Cover

1982. unbound. 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.

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.
