    Skylab I (SL-2) Flown and Worn Flight Jacket Patches (Two) Originally from the Personal Collection of Mission Pilot Paul Weitz, Signed and Certified, with Signed LOA. The U.S. flag and name tag as removed from one of his tan Durette inflight jackets worn on this historic mission. The American flag is 5" x 2.75" and is sewn to a slightly larger and irregularly cut swatch of cloth from the jacket's left upper sleeve. He has written on the verso: "Taken from my in flight/ jacket worn on Skylab I (SL-2)/ Paul Weitz, PLT". The white cloth "P. WEITZ" name tag is 3.75" x 0.75", originally found on the left upper front of the jacket, is also sewn to a larger cut piece of material. He has written on the verso: "Flown on Skylab I/ Paul Weitz PLT." Included is an 8" x 10" color photo of Weitz wearing one such tan Skylab flight jacket. All in excellent condition. From the Steven R. Belasco Collection of Space Memorabilia.

    Included with this lot is a handwritten and signed Letter of Authenticity on Weitz's personal letterhead stating, in full: "To whom it may concern- I hereby certify that the 'P. WEITZ' name tag and the Beta cloth United States flag presented with this letter were originally on one of my tan inflight jackets that I word during the first Skylab mission, Skylab I, May 25- June 22, 1973. As our mission progressed, worn crew clothing was routinely disposed of after a prescribed period of use. Prior to disposal into the aft waste tank, I cut (obviously not carefully) these items from my jacket. On the reverse side, I have annotated and signed each item on the tan Durette material."
