    Two patches- one flown to the moon on Apollo 16, the other flown on the "shakedown" cruise of the Space Shuttle.

    Apollo 16 and Space Shuttle Columbia (STS-1) Flown Embroidered Mission Insignia Patch Display Directly from the Personal Collection of John Young, the Commander of both Missions, Signed. An amazing display piece with flown souvenirs from two of the many highlights of John Young's storied career as an astronaut. Double matted in red and blue to an overall 12" x 16" are individual flown embroidered insignia patches from Young's last trip to the moon on Apollo 16 and the first ever flight of the Space Shuttle program on Columbia STS-1, along with a 9.25" x 6" (sight size) color photo montage, and a printed sheet stating the provenance of the patches containing his signature. There is a blank area on the sheet where the "Presented to" has not been filled in. The STS-1 patch is 4.375" x 4.75" overall and the Apollo 16 patch is 4" in diameter. Ready to frame. Excellent condition with only a tiny nick in the photo, easily repaired.
