On October 1, 2003, Canada issued 8 stamps honoring the members of the Canadian Space Agency astronaut program. 2 first day covers with 4 stamps each was serviced. I thought these would look great autographed by the astronauts depicted on the stamps. I sent these covers in care of the Canadian Space Agency. They acknowleged receipt of my covers and advised me due to the training and travel schedules, it would take awhile to secure all the autographs. After 2 years, trhe cover you see is the result. I think you'll agree it was worth the wait.
