DescriptionGemini 10 Mission Commander John Young's Flown Space Suit Patches (Three) Directly from his Personal Collection, Certified and Signed on the Display Frame. Truly one of the toughest to obtain and most desirable of all space collectibles are flown patches directly from an astronaut's space suit. Presented here is a 10" x 17" framed display that has been in John Young's possession from his return from the flight in 1966 until now. It contains three items (top to bottom): a 5.25" x 4" (sight size) U.S. flag (worn on left upper sleeve); a 3.25" x 3" embroidered Gemini 10 mission insignia patch (worn on right upper sleeve); and his 3.25" x 1" embroidered "J. W. YOUNG" name patch (worn on right chest). There are numerous photos available that show these patches on his pressure suit both pre and post-flight. Excellent condition.
On the paper backing of the frame, Young has written: "I certify that these patches flew on my pressure suit on Gemini 10. John Young".
