Description


Fred Haise’s official laminated badge used during Apollo 16 training, 2.5 x 3.75, with “Apollo 16 Crew” prominently displayed in yellow, and his name printed below, “Fred W. Haise, Jr., Astronaut.” In very good condition, with expected heavy creases and wear from frequent use. Accompanied by a signed letter of provenance from Haise, in part: “With this letter is a laminated badge issued to me during my training for the Apollo 16 mission back in 1972. I was the back-up commander for this flight. The badge permitted access [to] various areas at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida…I served as a consultant during the actual Apollo 16 flight in Mission Control. My training closely paralleled that of the prime crew, so it was natural for me to be in a position to support in the solution of any problems that developed.” As a member of Apollo 13, Haise was also one of few people to have ever experienced and solved serious problems in space, making him an ideal candidate for such a supporting role. A unique and well-used artifact associating two of the Apollo program’s missions to the moon. The Leon Ford Collection.
