An Apollo 11 lunar checklist containing annotations by astronaut Buzz Aldrin while he was on the moon was among the coveted items sold at a Bonhams auction Tuesday. It went for more than $68,000, up from a pre-sale estimate of $45,000. Other highlights included a cloth emblem of an eagle landing on the moon that was signed by Aldrin, Armstrong and Michael Collins which sold for $62,000. A U.S. flag carried by Aldrin fetched $47,500, double its pre-sale estimate, and a spacesuit garnered over $43,000, more than five times its estimate.
