    Description

    Apollo and Skylab: Fifteen Crew and Souvenir Embroidered Mission Insignia Patches Directly from the Jim Rathmann Collection. A fabulous collection of original crew patches. Based on the Rathmanns' relationship with many of these astronauts, we feel that it's at least possible that some of these might have flown on the appropriate mission. Without written provenance, we will certainly not claim that they did fly. Either way, this would be a tough grouping to put together. All are in excellent condition. Includes the following:
    Apollo 7: 4.75" x 4" overall. Appears to be an AB Emblem souvenir patch.
    Apollo 8: 4.5" x 4" overall. Appears to be an AB Emblem souvenir patch.
    Apollo 9: 3.375" diameter. Appears to be a crew patch variant. Possibly flown. Rare.
    Apollo 10: 4" x 4.375" overall. Appears to be an AB Emblem souvenir patch.
    Apollo 10: 4" x 4" overall. Appears to be a Grumman crew patch. Possibly flown. Rare.
    Apollo 12: 4" diameter. Appears to be an AB Emblem souvenir patch. Possibly flown.
    Apollo 13: 4" diameter. Appears to be an AB Emblem crew patch. Possibly flown.
    Apollo 14 (x2): 4" x 3.5". Appears to be an AB Emblem souvenir patch.
    Apollo 14 ("Beep Beep"): 4.25" x 4". Appears to be an AB Emblem Backup Crew Patch. Possibly flown.
    Apollo 14 ("Beep Beep"): 4.25" x 4". Appears to be an AB Emblem Limited Edition souvenir patch (silver border).
    Apollo-Soyuz: 4" diameter. Appears to be an AB Emblem crew patch. Possibly flown.
    Apollo-Soyuz Project (x2): 4" diameter. Souvenir patch.
    Skylab SL-2: 4" diameter. Appears to be the AB Emblem souvenir patch.
