Description


Impressive flown embroidered ‘Texas Art Embroidery’ Gemini 10 mission insignia patch carried on the Gemini 10 mission [attested to by Susy Young], measuring 3 x 3, encapsulated in a tamper-proof sleeve and affixed to a certificate of authenticity signed by Susy Young, the wife of the late Command Module Pilot John Young, in part: "I hereby certify that the Gemini 10 ‘Texas Art Embroidery’ Embroidered patch that accompanies this letter was flown aboard the Gemini 10 mission July 18-21, 1966. This patch was a part of John W. Young’s personal collection since the mission." In fine condition. This symbolic insignia design, featuring a large red X with a Gemini and Agena orbiting around it, holds a variety of meanings: it may be interpreted as the mission's two rendezvous attempts, Castor and Pollux in Gemini, or the two crew members. This is the scarcest of all embroidered patches with just 110 produced by Texas Art Embroidery for the mission. A fantastic flown piece from Young's personal collection.
