    Georgia Tech flies to the moon.

    Apollo 16 Flown Georgia Institute of Technology Embroidered Patch Directly from the Personal Collection of Mission Commander John Young, Signed and Certified. A 3.125" diameter scalloped-edge patch in yellow and white featuring the school's seal with the text "Seal - of - the - Georgia - Institute - of - Technology -1885" around. Of course, this school is much better known to the general public as Georgia Tech. This is where Young earned his Bachelor of Science degree in aeronautical engineering with highest honors in 1952 before entering the Navy. He has boldly signed on the verso: "FLOWN/ Apollo 16/ John W. Young". A rare item and a "must have" for some proud Yellow Jacket alum. Excellent condition.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
