    Large Apollo Patch Comprised of 12 Individual Manned Mission Patches with 15 Astronaut Signatures. Very impressive embroidered patch featuring each manned Apollo mission patch as part of the design. Following the destruction of Apollo 1 during a test/training exercise and the death of the three astronauts that were aboard, Apollo missions 2 through 6 were all designated as test missions and were unmanned. Apollo 7 through 17 were manned missions, and their patches were incorporated into this large display patch which measures approximately 10.5" in diameter. The display piece has been affixed to a white 16.25 x 16.75" mounting board, and 15 astronauts have signed next to their mission patches. Signatures include: Wally Schirra and Walt Cunningham of Apollo 7; Dave Scott and Rusty Schweickart of Apollo 9; Gene Cernan of Apollo 10; Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins of Apollo 11; Richard Gordon and Alan Bean of Apollo 12; Fred Haise of Apollo 13; Edgar Mitchell of Apollo 14; Alfred Worden and Dave Scott of Apollo 15; Charlie Duke of Apollo 16; and Gene Cernan and Harrison "Jack" Schmitt of Apollo 17. Apparently this display piece with signatures was put together as a gift for Guenter Wendt, launch pad leader during the Apollo years. Written in black Sharpie at lower left: "Given to F. Wendt, Pad Leader." Patch, mounting board and signatures are in magnificent condition. This one deserves prominent display!
