MANY ITEMS FROM THOSE MISSIONS HAVE ENDED UP ON AUCTION BLOCKS WHERE AVID COLLECTORS HAVE SCOOPED THEM UP FOR THEIR COLLECTIONS. ONE SUCH COLLECTOR IS JAMES RUDDY A LOCAL RANCHO MIRAGE RESIDENT WHICH HAS COLLECTED ITEMS OVER THE LAST 14 YEARS. OUR PHOTOJOURNALIST CHRIS TARPENING CAUGHT UP WITH HIM TO GIVE YOU A LITTLE LOOK INSIDE THE COLLECTION AND A LITTLE LOOK AT THE MISSIONS OF APOLLO 40 YEARS AGO.
