Very rarely do intact Space Shuttle Tiles come to market, least of all a Challenger Tile on a historically significant flight. STS-41G was the first shuttle mission to carry a crew of seven, including the first crew with two women (Sally Ride and Kathryn Sullivan), the first American female conducted EVA involving a woman (Sullivan), the first Australian-born person to journey into space and, more comically, the first astronaut with a beard (Paul Scully-Power) as well as the first Canadian astronaut (Marc Garneau).
