The lot is addressed to Jimmy Starr, a representative for Ramada Inns, and reads: "Thank you very much for your recent letter of best wishes along with a copy of your Annual Report depicting the first hotel complex on the surface of the moon.

"We of the crew of Apollo XI sincerely appreciate your interest in our activities and are grateful for your support."

It dates to July 8, 1969 - just eight days before the team took off on their historic voyage. It's a fascinating piece that indicates the level of enthusiasm for spaceflight among the public.

Sadly Ramada Inns has yet to build a hotel on the Moon.

The RR Auction sale also features a cheque signed by Neil Armstrong. It stands at $1,017.

The lot dates to December 5, 1987 and is one of very few Armstrong autographs on the market.
