    Skylab I (SL-2) Original Cloth Beta-Design Emblem Signed by the Entire Crew.
    This original beta-design was used for the Skylab I (SL-2) emblem and patch. The design, printed on a 9" x 9" piece of white cloth, depicts the Skylab I (SL-2) in space, completed in brown and blue earth tones, with the names of the Skylab I (SL-2) astronauts around the border. The cloth has been signed in black ink by Charles Conrad, Jr., Paul J. Weitz, and Joseph P. Kerwin, and inscribed by Weitz in full: "From my personal collection. Paul Weitz PLT." The emblem is accompanied by a handwritten letter of authenticity from Skylab I (SL-2) pilot Weitz, penned on his personal Skylab letterhead which reads in full: "I hereby certify that the Skylab I Beta cloth patch presented with this letter contains the authentic signatures of the Skylab I crew, Charles Conrad, Joseph Kerwin and myself. It is from my personal collection of artifacts from the mission and has been in my possession ever since. Paul Weitz, Skylab I Pilot." Skylab's missions had official numerical designations: Skylab 1 for the unmanned launch of the Skylab space station on a giant Saturn V rocket, and Skylab 2, 3, and 4 for the manned visits, which were lofted to space by Saturn 1B rockets. However, confusion in numerical vs. Roman numeral designations led to Skylab 2 items bearing Skylab I identifiers. All items are in very fine condition. From the personal collection of Paul Weitz.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
