Yesterday, I received my 2001 space related patch (ISS Expedition 37 mission patch). I have been collecting them for over 40 years.

I have some framed on my walls and many more in binders. I keep an Excel spreadsheet of them to make sure I do not purchase duplicates.

One day, I hope to take pictures of them all and post on a web site (if I can find the time).

Congrats and don't stop now!

Congratulations indeed!! Well done... A question, when you say 2001, is each a different one or do you have some duplicates of some? I have probably close to 2000 patches myself, but quite a few duplicates as I try to get one for each flight it was on, e.g. the GAS - Get Away Special patch, for each mission it flew on, I am trying to get a patch.

And in reference to your wanting to photograph them all, I wish I could do that myself. A good example is the USAFpatches.com and the gallery there. It would be great if there was a "library" where a pic of each patch could be posted. People could upload ones they do not see in the gallery and let it build up. A complete catalog of patches would then be available to be seen. Might not have it yourself, but you know what it would look like if you did.

None of mine are duplicates. I may have several for the same type of mission, such as three different styles of the getaway specials. Any duplicates I have are listed on the same line in my spreadsheet as the original so they do not count towards the total.
