The second crew and four name versions arrived via UPS on Saturday. I've just spent the last hour and a half to get them all ready to be mailed. They will go out Monday or Tuesday.

Please drop me an email when you receive yours (you know who you are).

By the way, I have three sets of first, second and four name crew patches available. I also have six sets of first and second crew available. Email me if interested.

It has been some time, but here is the version that was worn on the Sokols by Volkov and Kononenko.

Only 20 or so were made locally in Russia from the original artwork (like the TMA-12 patch that was on the same suits). This was before NASA got hold of the artwork and made their own digital version.

You will notice that the "E" in Kononenko is in fact an "E" and not an "e", as was mistakenly drawn in the NASA artwork and translated into the embroidered AB Emblem patches. Also, the names are positioned more to the sides.

And here is a corrected "E" version of the AB Emblem patch, made last year when Kononenko and Volkov re-ordered it to use as gifts to museums and schools etc.
