Segment of gray tape flown aboard the Sklylab Space Station, measuring 1.75 x 1.25, and affixed to a signed certificate of authenticity from Skylab 4 pilot Bill Pogue, in full: “This gray tape was flown during the duration of the Skylab Space Station and was used to seal the food overcans. Each overcan was approximately 15″ long and contained about ten flip–top cans. The Astronauts would save the tape and use it for a variety of other jobs aboard Skylab. This piece of gray tape is from my personal collection, was in space from May 14, 1973 to February 8, 1974 and flew over 100 million miles.” In fine condition. Accompanied by two early variations of the embroidered Skylab patch, one measuring 4.5 x 2, the other 7.25 x 3.75. Support the Astronaut Scholarship Foundation.
