Vintage Detroit News Newspaper Edition – First Color Moon Photos! - The Detroit News 1969 Souvenir Edition – Collect or Use


This is a special Souvenir Edition from The Detroit News issued after the Apollo 11 moon landing event. Fully opened up it measures nearly 23 inches tall by 29 inches wide. It is one page of heavier paper than newsprint with a harder surface on it to take the deep color photos they printed. It will be shipped as you see it in the second photo, since it's always been folded like that. I've owned it since new, so it's always been in a non-smoking home.

There is only slight damage from its 49 years and I've tried to capture that in some in the photos. When opened up to the front page there's some moisture damage in the upper left and right corners. There's also a small crease tear when fully opened. This would still be quite frame worthy. The rest of this only shows age toning.

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

The price includes shipping.
