Not a patch; just the team shirts with an embroidered design based on the mission insignia.

Here's a NASA-issued patch from 2006:

The New Horizons mission logo has a nonagon around it. Does the nine-sided shape just symbolise how Pluto is the ninth main body from the sun, or is there another reason?

There are quite a few references to nine as part of the New Horizons mission.
  • First mission to ninth planet
  • Nine hours to pass the moon
  • Nine years to Pluto
  • Nine mementos onboard
  • Nine hours (round trip) communication time
  • Nine finger salute
