    Ex. Richard Gordon

    Apollo 12: Crew-Signed Mission Insignia Beta Cloth, and Mission Insignia Cloth signed by Alan Bean and Richard Gordon, Directly from the Family Collection of Mission Command Module Pilot Richard Gordon. A great pair of items from the second manned lunar landing mission. Each is an unflown 9" square swatch with a 3" color mission insignia at center. The first is signed by full crew around the bottom of the insignia in black inks: "Charles Conrad Jr", "Richard Gordon", and "Alan Bean". The second is signed below the insignia in black ink: "Alan Bean/ LMP" and "Richard Gordon/ CMP". The mission had an especially intriguing mission insignia depicting a clipper ship arriving at the moon (it was an all-Navy crew), trailing fire, and flying the U.S. flag. There are four stars in the background, one each for the three astronauts who flew the mission and one for Clifton Williams who was killed on October 5, 1967, during a training flight. He had been assigned to the back-up crew for what would be the Apollo 9 mission and would have most likely been assigned as lunar module pilot for Apollo 12. Excellent.
