Man’s first step on the moon is a triumph that will echo throughout eternity, as it catapulted humanity into another realm of greatness. For the 50th anniversary of the epic event, the NASA Apollo 11 Moon Landing Videotape Recordings will go up for auction and will find its way to the space exploration fanatic with the deepest pockets.

With a combined run time of 2 hours and 24 minutes, the recordings feature all of the game-changing moments of the historic NASA event — including Neil Armstrong’s first steps on the gray terrain and the long-distance phone call to President Richard Nixon. The raw, unrestored videotapes are the only surviving first-generation recordings of the event. There are three reels of 2-inch Quadruplex videotapes that have only been viewed three times since June 1976. Not to mention, the reels contain the sharpest, most accurate surviving footage of the Apollo 11 mission. The three reels will be headlining the Sotheby’s auction dedicated to space exploration, which will be held in New York on July 20. If you’re looking to own a significant piece of history, prepare to drop around $2 million to secure these historic reels.

Purchase: $2,000,000+
