Vintage Detroit News Newspaper Edition – Man on the Moon - The Detroit News 1969 Special Guide to Apollo 11 – Collect or Use


This is a special edition from The Detroit News issued after the Apollo 11 moon landing event. It measures 14 inches high by 11 inches wide and opens up to 14 inches high by 22 inches wide. It contains 24 pages of amazing information about the entire program including a play-by-play account of the work done on the moon. There is no date on it, but it was only issued one time in 1969 and I've owned it since new, so it's always been in a non-smoking home. It will be shipped as you see it in the first photo, since it's always been folded like that.

You can see the only real damage on it in the last few photos. There is a small patch of soiling and a piece of missing paper at the seam near the top and bottom of the last page. It has barely bled onto page 22 but not on page 3. The rest of this only shows age toning.
This has a lot of drawings and photos, including color photos which in 1969 was very new tech for newspapers. You'll be studying this intently I assure you. For those who want to study history or relive it, this is a rare chance to get original documentation of the Apollo 11 moon landing.

This will not be stuffed into an envelope! It will be shipped in a protective cardboard mailer.

The price includes shipping.
