Apollo-Soyuz Test Project (ASTP) received a lot of philatelic attention as not only being the first ever joint space flight but also as the last Apollo flight and the last splashdown event.
Many stamps and covers were issued officially and privately including cinderellas. I have some in my collection and will be glad to see others that I do not have.

I will begin from the probably most famous space "non-postal" stamps creator - NASA local post. In 1967, Space City Cover Society (SCCS) established its own Local Post under the name – NASA Local Post (NLP). There has been no connection to NASA or any other government agency, just a nice logo.

NLP produced special ASTP cancellation and 2 types of cinderellas - "emblem" and "docking". Actually there were 3 types of cinderellas - if you look at the "docking" sheet - there are 7 Soyuz-Apollo stickers and 2 inverted - Apollo Soyuz (in the left upper corner). Four different covers were used for NASA Local Post with four colors of postmarks, though the colors were assigned to a specific event, sometimes you can find "wrong" color on "wrong" cover.

Another player is DOC's local post. There are several covers commemorating the event but I have seen only two types of Apollo-Soyuz cinderellas (stickers).

No Cinderella.
A bit of gossip regarding the FDC cancelled on the same day, from 2 continents,
for those interested in the Flight.

That is definitely one of the most exiting stories in ASTP covers collecting!

Just to make it more complete - 3000 ASTP emblem cacheted covers were cancelled on Jul 15, 1975, first in Moscow for the Soyuz launch and then at Cape Canaveral for the Apollo launch. Another 3000 Moscow cancelled covers got Johnson Space Center special cancellation on Jul 17 – ASTP docking.

Besides the mentioned above, some other same-day combinations exist, but not very common.

The last two Cinderellas, were probably made by a colleague of Jim Cyzl, the notorious Cinderella producer "Cyzl's Penny Post"
