I just received an email from Icon Heroes and wanted to pass the information on to anyone here who might be interested in this set of "For All Mankind" Season 2 patches. It is limited to 100 autographed sets, although it's not clear if there would be more later without the autograph.

From the patches, quite a lot can be inferred about the direction the series will be going in season 2!

Imagine a world where the global space race never ended. This "what if" take on history from Ronald D. Moore (Outlander, Battlestar Galactica) spotlights the lives of NASA astronauts — the heroes and rock stars of their time — and their families.

Apple TV's "For All Mankind" inaugural season was a hit and Season 2 is streaming February 19, 2021. Now you can get a head start with this set of 19 embroidered patches from the upcoming season! Each patch measures approximately 3.5 inches, is embroidered with a blend of cotton and polyester and includes an iron on backing for easy attachment. As a bonus, each collectible tin is personally autographed from series creator and writer Ronald D. Moore!

These sets are available now but hurry — they are limited to only 100 autographed sets!

It is great to see officially-licensed patches being produced and sold. $100 for 19 3.5-inch patches ($5.26 per patch) is reasonable, especially if you add in the tin and autograph.

Maybe if they see enough interest, then Icon Heroes might be able to also produce a Season 1 set at some point.

Nice. I just ordered a set. A great deal at that price and finally getting Ron Moore's autograph!

I thought the same things, Robert, i.e., the price is right and maybe they'll do a Season 1. I'm thinking that they'd have to do new production runs of those patches yet maybe not.

Already shipped out.

I certainly hope there is enough interest for them to circle back and do a set from Season 1. These look to me like the sort of thing that gets made as a production gift for insiders (especially with the “Apple TV+” on the lid) so I’ll take anything I can get.

Couldn't resist. I wonder if these are the same as production used?

I don't know if they are from the production batch, but looking back at the Season 2 teaser released in July, you can see some of the same patch designs:

I asked Icon Heroes if there was any chance that they'd be selling Season 1. This was their response: Stay tuned. 😀

P.S. Just 4 left as of 7:10pm EST

Received them in this morning's mail. Pleased as all get out with them and looking forward to the episodes.

Hoping that there will be a Season 1 patch set offered SOON! Christmas is right around the corner!

It was the Skylab/Atlantis patch.

And about 10 minutes after sending them a message about it, they confirmed I have the missing patch shipping to me.

Great service from Icon Heroes!

Icon Heroes has announced an open edition set of the 19 patches, packaged in a poly bag (and without Ronald D. Moore's autograph) for the same $100, shipping in first quarter 2021.
