Immediately following the triumphant first lunar landing by Apollo 11 in 1969, MGM Records released a commemorative record entitled Apollo 11 Flight, First Man on the Moon. In the four decades that have passed since that historic event, the little 45 RPM records have become valuable collectibles. Those of you old enough to remember them will recall that 45's didn't get very careful handling. The records are valued in Collecting the Space Race by Stuart Schneider at $45 each. The story is narrated by the famous television newscaster Hugh Downs and is comprised of audio excerpts from Mercury, Gemini, and Apollo missions as well as the famous "space" speeches of President John Kennedy.
