Heritage Auctions is putting 300 photos from the NASA Apollo space missions up for sale to the highest bidder. Curated by spaceflight historian J.L. Pickering, the auction will feature vintage prints and negative film strips. 

The auction will be held on 24 September 2021, but proxy bids are already open. Pictures are expected to go for anything from a few hundred to a few thousand dollars, depending on content and rarity. In November 2020, a photo of Neil Armstrong on the moon was auctioned in a set of 2,400 photos. Collectively, they sold for a total of £1,564,876 or roughly $2,165,004.
