Feedback: What did you think of this show?:
Robert Pearlman returned to The Space Show to discuss space memorabilia collecting. Through http://collectspace.com and also Countdown Enterprises in Rocket Town near Houston, TX, Robert is one of the authorities on collecting space items. He discussed collecting from the vantage point of one just starting out to the experienced or even professional collector. Robert fielded questions about Moon rocks, Space Ship One memorabilia, Hubble memorabilia, Russian space collectables, eBay and much more. Robert clearly shows that this is more than just a hobby and a great gateway to becoming part of the space community. In response to several questions, he addressed the issue of astronaut autographs, both from active as well as retired astronauts. He even suggested ways to start collecting for free! He invites interested parties to contact him with questions about collecting, about specific items, or even to authenticate an item.
