  Grissom died in a launch pad test in 1967

The overalls, emblazoned with NASA emblems for the tragic flight, are selling for $4,096, having risen far past the minimum bid of $500 after receiving five bids.

Apollo 1 was set to be the first manned mission of NASA's Apollo lunar landing programme, but all members of the crew were tragically killed in a cabin fire during a launch pad test in 1967.

Paul Fraser Collectibles recently sold the suit that Buzz Aldrin wore in preparation for Apollo 11, and we still have a magnificent selection of space memorabilia for sale, including a signed set of photos from every man to walk on the Moon.
