Item 6494 - STS-6: Paul Weitz Signed Patch Design Artwork Catalog 486 (Oct 2016)

Back To Previous Page
(we are no longer accepting bids on this item)
Minimum Bid: $200.00
Sold Price: $918.75 (includes buyer's premium)


Paul Weitz’s set of original designs for the STS-6 mission insignia, ranging in size from 11 x 10 to 8.5 x 11, with each version bearing subtle stylistic differences, including: an impressive hand-painted design of the Challenger and satellite floating with six stars and a cloud-covered Earth, the white border showing the names of the shuttle, the satellite, the booster rocket, and astronauts; a preliminary design with two stars, a blue Earth, large red Challenger font, and a yellow border with astronaut names; an intermediate design showing the Virgo constellation with blue earth, fire-propelled satellite, and white border with rearranged mission names; and a final design of the mission insignia, most closely resembling the hand-painted design. Each sheet is signed in ballpoint or felt tip, “From my personal collection, Paul Weitz, CDR,” who adds brief notes to three of the designs. In overall fine condition. Accompanied by a photo of the mission patch, as well as a photo of Weitz holding up three of the designs. Signed examples of original mission insignia designs remain one of the more uncommon and desirable space collectibles. Pre-certified Zarelli Space Authentication.
