That looks awesome! Sort of reminds me of a Robert McCall artwork!

While searching on Amazon this morning, I came across this listing with a familiar patch design on the cover.

I am making final preparations for the release of the STS-62A patches later this year. I think you will all be very pleased with how they look.

I need your opinion on some questions to get a sense of what kind of limited edition set you would like:

  1. Do you want the ability to purchase each patch separately or only as the set of four?

  2. Do you want a folio which would include the crew photo, a photo of Enterprise on the SLC-6 pad, a replica of Bob Crippens letter to me from 1985 and my original descriptions of each proposed patch? This would add cost to the set.

  3. OR do you want to purchase the patches alone and create your own display?
This will be a one-time offer and my only goal is to make it as special as possible. Your feedback is most appreciated. Thanks.

Tim, have you any thoughts of designing an 8 inch patch, similar to the Atlantis patch, for Discovery and Endeavour? They would be great additions to the Atlantis patch.

Just received my STS-62A patch set from Tim. Simply an excellent presentation well worth the wait. Great job and thanks!

I received my 62A set from Tim on Wednesday. They really are gorgeous... beautifully executed designs that very much echo the design aesthetic of that era. The big (15" x 11") CoA is very handsome as well.

I know commemoratives and "patches that never were" aren't of interest to everyone, but if you're a Shuttle fan, these are well worth owning.

I agree! I received mine a few days ago and they are beautiful. If you ever collected shuttle patches, you need this set.

Thank you for the compliments about the set. Unfortunately the response was less than I hoped and only 50 sets were made.

But thanks to Maarten, who purchased ten extra sets for resale, some of you who still want one can obtain it.

There won't be anymore produced.

As Tim mentioned I have ordered 10 extra sets that I intend to resell. It was the only way to have the sets made because the initial orders Tim got were not enough to justify production. I therefore decided to help out. I have no intention to make any profit on them and will sell them for the same price Tim offered them. If anyone is interested just contact me. I haven't received the sets yet but am confident they will reach me very soon.

Glad I could help you out Tim, the patches look amazing as always!

Update 2: So far I have had requests for five sets with COAs. Only five remain. When they are gone they are gone, no more will be made. Contact me if interested.

Looking out a couple of years, the 40th anniversary of the Voyager mission will be coming up. Only patch I've ever seen for it was frankly pretty ugly. Sure would be nice to have a good commemorative of that. Hint, hint.
