The result is further confirmation for space autograph collectors of the power of the Moonwalkers.

A photograph signed by all 12 Moonwalkers sold for $27,000 (£16,860) in October 2011. The official nature of the ACIC document clearly helped boost the price in this case.

The sale also featured a signed photograph of the three members of Apollo 1, which made $9,750.

We have a Life magazine page featuring the autographs of the three members of Apollo 11 available to you now.

A 1990s Russian training suit worn by a US astronaut Shannon Lucid sold within estimate for $35,000.

Lucid wore the suit in preparation for 188 days orbiting the Earth on board the MIR space station in 1996.

The Sokol KV-2 space-flown suit was also employed as a "rescue suit" in the event of depressurisation.

A prototype Soviet Yastreb spacewalk, or EVA, suit, designed ahead of the Soyuz 4 and Soyuz 5 missions of 1969, sold for $46,250.

Space collectors looking for a suit connected with the historic Apollo 11 mission may be interested to learn we have a training suit worn and signed by Buzz Aldrin currently available for sale.
