For all my longtime friends, fellow patch collectors and people who have helped me over the past 17 years, as of Sept. 30, 2014, Skyforce Space Patches will be no more. Due to some serious changes in my life and disagreements with my supplier, I have decided to move on to another challenge.

Robert Pearlman has my undying gratitude for helping me and guiding me in the right directions numerous times, along with Tim Gagnon, Jason Blackburn and scores of other fantastic friends! I will keep everyone in my thoughts and I am looking forward to a new and exciting challenge in my life.

Again, words cannot express my thanks to each and every one of you who helped me achieve goals I never thought possible. My best wishes to each and every one of you and I hope to hear from you in the future! With my kindest regards always — Joe

Joe, best of luck to you in your new endeavors. As we have talked, I know it has been a hard decision but the right one. You have had my full support and I fully understand your decision.

For those who never had the honor of doing business with Joe, let me tell you he was one of the most ethical men you could have ever did business with when ordering through Skyforce Space Patches.

Best of luck my friend. I'll talk to you soon.

We will miss you Joe as a patch seller, but you will always be a friend. All the best in your new endeavors. Now who will I get my patches from? I have bought patches almost entirely from Skyforce over the years.

God bless you Joe.

I have had the pleasure of working with Joe on patch projects for many years. He is without a doubt the most ethical and honest person I've ever dealt with. He is also a very good friend.

Now that I'm working with The Space Store, I will welcome any SkyForce patch customer who gives us the honor of their business. We will strive to give you the kind of customer service you've come to expect.

If anyone has any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact me at

Best of Luck Joe!

I told you some days ago Joe. Sad news to hear. I hope you'll get a lot of success on your new project and in everything you'll do.

Thank you very much for your help and attentions along the past years. My hand is extended to help you in any way I can. I will miss you.
