    Description

    Apollo 13 Flown President's Council on Physical Fitness & Sports Embroidered Patch Directly from the Personal Collection of Mission Commander James Lovell, Signed. This 3" patch has the presidential seal in red, white, blue, and gold thread against a blue background with white lettering. In June 1967, President Johnson appointed Lovell as his consultant for physical fitness and sports. President Nixon, in 1970, assigned Lovell the additional responsibility of Chairman of the Council. Lovell served in these roles until resigning in 1978, but is still active in the Council's activities. Excellent condition.

    Lovell has signed this patch on the verso: "James Lovell" (fair contrast).

    Included with this lot is a signed Letter of Certification from Lovell stating: "This President's Council on Physical Fitness & Sports Patch was flown on board the Apollo 13 Command Module Odyssey during its flight around the moon April 11-17, 1970. It was stored in the Commander's Personal Preference Kit. The patch would have remained in Odyssey had we landed on the moon."
