DescriptionSkylab 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.
