AB Emblem is producing a 4-inch patch for the Apollo 11 50th Anniversary.

This is not an official NASA design. It is not yet available.

Is this a 100% embroidered patch or a hybrid of printed and embroidered? As an old school patch collector, I would like to see AB Emblem return to fully embroidered patches.

Not sure but I to me it looks 100% blasé. For such a momentous occasion the design is a bit of a let down.

AB Emblem announced it was offered to traders in error and has been withdrawn. It is an exclusive for the Johnson Space Center.

According to the German shop Andromeda24, there are two versions of this patch:
  • with the words "50 Years Moon Landing" (exclusive for the Johnson Space Center)
  • with the words "The First Lunar Landing 1969-2019" (for the general public).

According to the German shop Andromeda24, for licensing reasons, the patch has yet to be revised and A-B Emblem is working on a new design.

I'm sorry, the first information from the manufacturer was different.

This patch ("The First Lunar Landing, 1969-2019") is now for sale (as seen at Space Center Houston's Space Trader gift shop).

The AB Emblem design code is 297086 (with date code 07/1840).

AB-Emblem information: The patch is not available. This was a custom patch that we made for a customer, we will not be reselling it.

Ah well, not the best design imaginable.

Just as well that I designed and produced something that looks quite a bit better, in my opinion. Details soon, stay tuned.

As usual good news from the Netherlands. That means waiting a bit until the 50th anniversary of the Moon landing and the new anniversary patch.
