Flown NASA patch, worn on Jack Lousma’s PBI S1030A space suit during launch and landing of Columbia’s shuttle mission STS-3 in 1982. ‘Worm-style’ NASA patch measures 3.75 x 1.75, and is certified and signed on the reverse in black felt tip, “Worn on STS-3, Jack Lousma CDR STS-3.” Accompanied by a hand-signed certification letter from Lousma which reads, in part: “This is to certify that the accompanying STS-3 Flight Suit NASA ‘Worm’ Patch was flown aboard the Columbia STS-3 Shuttle and worn by me on my PBI S1030A Ejection Escape Suit during launch at the Kennedy Space Center and landing at White Sands Space Harbor in New Mexico…This…NASA ‘Worm’ logo patch was attached to the right shoulder sleeve portion of my dark gold PBI S1030A Ejection Escape Suit worn both during launch and landing.” Also accompanied by a certification photo of Lousma holding the patch. In fine condition. A rare opportunity to own an actual space suit-worn patch—not to be confused with a typical commemorative patch. Pre-certified Steve Zarelli and RR Auction COA.
