Anyone know any information about an 8" Skylab program patch (Cloth back - no plastic)?

Yes, that patch was manufactured in some quantity in 1973 and was available at NASA gift shops. I've also seen a really poor remake on eBay I think in the past year. It didn't mention what its backing is.

I have the newer ans really poorer version of this patch and it has a plastic back.
I saw the original patch years ago which was somewhat better in stitching and quality but I was not able to get one as of today.
