Autographs of two celebrities

When man landed on the moon on 20th July 1969, like the whole world, I as a child was also witness to the famous "one small step - one giant leap for mankind". These historical words by Neil Alden Armstrong, the first man ever to step on the moon, made history. Then after the landing back of the astronauts of Apollo 11, the small pieces of moon rocks were shown around the world. Our school also arranged a special visit to the place where the moon rock was displayed and I along with other children looked at the small tiny motionless piece of grayish moon rock with awe and wonder. Later we were issued with posters and brochures of the moon landing, which also included this picture of Neil Armstrong with his autographs.

Elvis Presley was a great singer of his time. While the British adored the Beatles, Americans idolized Presley. Here is a photo of his autograph on a letter written to one of his fans. He is often referred to as "the King of Rock and Roll", or just simply the King. He is the best selling solo artist in the history of popular music.
