Toward the end of the space shuttle program Pratt & Whitney Rocketdyne put out a series of Space Shuttle Main Engine (SSME) subsystem-specific DVDs as employee commemorative. Each DVD included a very well made full-size cloth patch for that subsystem. So far, I've managed to obtain 14 of these patches (below) and I wonder if this is the complete set, or are there additional patches I should be looking for? Thanks for any additional info.

I don't know how many were made, but now I have a new thing to collect. Thanks!

So, say we were to purchase the DVD on Amazon, are you suggesting that there is a patch for each of the two DVDs in the set?

I saw those DVDs on Amazon and my answer to your question is: I'm not sure. Most of the patches that I acquired from the original owners were just the patch (no DVD). The couple of DVD/patch sets that were offered on eBay had the DVD slipcase package open and the loose patch included with the deal.

I was told that the "patch came with the DVD," but I am not certain if the patch was inside the sealed DVD slipcase, or if the patch was handed out to employees separately along with the sealed DVD.

I think that there's a patch for each of the DVDs/DVD topics. I have the SSME Program Support DVD and its accompanied patch along with the Flight Certification and Integration DVD and patch.
