Description


Uncommon Skylab 2 (SL–3) patch and decal featuring the alternative ‘wives’ mission emblem, substituting the Leonardo da Vinci-inspired central figure with a ‘universal’ female body, and replacing the astronaut names with those of their wives. The 4 x 4 decal is numbered 1119 in the the upper left corner, and is signed by Sue Gilliam [Bean], Helen–Mary Walker [Garriott], and Gratia Kay [Lousma], each signing first name only above her printed name, with the emblem’s creators, Ardis Shanks and Jacques Tiziou, signing their first names in the bottom portion. The embroidered patch measures 4″ in diameter. In overall fine condition. Accompanied by a letter of provenance from Gilliam, in part: “The Skylab II Wives patch was a joke…presented at a pre-flight party the evening before launch at Cape Kennedy. The patch was placed in our husband’s lockers on the flight when they opened them the next day in space.” The Leon Ford Collection. Pre-certified Zarelli Space Authentication.
