Along with Edwin “Buzz” Aldrin and Michael Collins, Neil Armstrong set off on a mission that had, in the past, failed to get a lunar module to land on the surface of the moon. Then, on July 20, 1969, Armstrong made history, becoming the first person to step foot on the moon.

Being such a huge contributor to scientific exploration, Armstrong’s signature is anything but cheap. A mint-condition autograph can go for around $11,000.
