DAVENPORT, Wash. - Sept. 15, 2020 - PRLog -- An auction dedicated entirely to the burgeoning field of NASA, space and aviation collectibles – led by the outstanding lifetime collection of the late Bill Endicott, plus a golf ball signed by America's very first astronaut, Alan Shepard – will be held on Thursday, October 1st, by Grant Zahajko Auctions, live and online. The sale will start at 9 am Pacific time.

Previews and in-house bidding will be by appointment only in the Grant Zahajko gallery, located at 510 Morgan Street in Davenport. To schedule an appointment, call 509-725-5600. People can register and bid on the Grant Zahajko website: www.bid.gzauctions.com. Phone and absentee bids will also be accepted. For info, visit https://www.gzauctions.com/other.html#tab_Absentee.

The Bill Endicott collection is a trove of NASA photographs and films, dating as far back as 1961 when, as a reporter, he was assigned to cover America's fledgling space program in Cape Canaveral, Fla. He met the first seven astronauts and interviewed many others, along with other distinguished men and women serving in the space program. Mr. Endicott died in 2018 at age 91.

Remarkably, Mr. Endicott's collection only came to light upon his passing, when his family discovered it amongst his possessions. The collection – a historical archive, chronicling the birth of America's space program and quest to be the first to put a man on the moon – reflects the gravity of his love for 'The Final Frontier'. It will be remembered as Endicott's legacy to NASA.

"What's exciting about this auction is that we have three separate estate collections of rare and unusual, fresh-to-the-market NASA, space and aviation collectibles in all price ranges," said Grant Zahajko of Grant Zahajko Auctions. "Specifically, Mr. Endicott's archive of NASA photos, films and slides give us a glimpse into the 1960s space programs and the astronauts."

Mr. Zahajko added, "The auction includes many images that I've not seen previously and some rare autographed pieces, including a Neil Armstrong State of Texas Medal of Honor Ceremony program. And, of course, the first golf ball that Alan Shepard ever signed must be considered the prize lot of the catalog. This auction is a must-attend event for collectors of space memorabilia."
