Iconic Moment: 21 July 1969, Neil Armstrong takes mankind’s first steps on the moon
Were you one of the estimated 500 million people to watch the moon landing on TV? Do you remember that sense of awe as you watched a man walking on the moon for the first time?
Neil Armstrong will always be the first man to have walked on the moon, but now he lives as a virtual recluse. He has consistently shunned the limelight and fame that came naturally as being the first man to walk on the moon in favour of a quiet life.
For that reason, Armstrong's signature is widely accepted as being the most difficult to acquire from a living celebrity. He doesn't sign autographs anymore. That, along with the historical significance, makes Armstrong and Apollo 11 memorabilia extremely collectible.
