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.

Season 1 is now available, offering both an autographed and non autographed versions.
Icon Heroes presents this set of twelve (12) embroidered patches from Season 1 of the hit Apple TV series For All Mankind! Each patch measures approximately 3.5 inches and is embroidered with a blend of cotton and polyester and includes an iron on backing for easy attachment.

Excellent! I said it before, but it is great that Apple TV+ and the "For All Mankind" production has allowed for these licensed patches to be produced and sold to fans of the show.

The Season 1 patches include many more (over Season 2) real-life names. I wonder what Bob Crippen, Joe Engle, Fred Haise and Charlie Duke think of their alternate timeline mission emblems?

Also, for anyone wondering, only the autographed limited edition set ships with the tin. The open edition patches come in a polybag.

I just wish you could buy them individually, as one from season two has my last name on it but I don't need any more patches I'd never sew onto something.

Thanks to Icon Heroes not only for producing the season 1 set, but also for responding almost instantly to cancel the regular set I ordered before seeing the tin.

Between season 1 and 2, what do you have to do to get a flight in this timeline if you’re not a Stevens?

Simple... Be in the Navy and not be a ginger.

By the way, I asked Icon Heroes if there was going to be a Pathfinder patch. Their response: We are aware of the Pathfinder patch and have been looking into it.

I purchased an individual Season 1 patch on eBay, not realizing the entire set was available. Thank you for the heads up. I just bought Season 1. Now, I plan to binge watch both seasons soon.

Icon Heroes has removed the Thomas Paine Space Telescope patch from the Season 3 set because "eagle-eyed readers found an inconsistency with what was shown on the show's montage."

Priced at $125, the Season 3 patches are limited to 150 sets.

I asked if they planned to do an autograph Season 3 edition and/or release more later. They said that they didn't know. Given today's results, I'd bet on more becoming available other than people reselling them. With a little searching, you can find Seasons 1 and 2 discounted.

Icon Heroes has announced that series co-creator and executive director Ron D. Moore will sign the Season 3 patches at San Diego Comic Con, Booth 3245, from 10 to 11 a.m. on Saturday (July 23).

No word yet if Moore will be signing the sets pre-ordered through the Icon Heroes' website or if the signing is exclusive for SDCC attendees.

I asked that question and Icon Heroes said that he would only sign patches purchased at SDCC.

I just went to check when pre-orders will ship and I noticed this:
Icon Heroes presents this set of fifteen (15) embroidered patches from Season 3 of the hit Apple TV+ series For All Mankind! Each patch measures approximately 3.5 inches and is embroidered with a blend of cotton and polyester and includes an iron on backing for easy attachment. Each set's box is signed by creator and writer Ronald D. Moore!
I never really read the description closely when pre-ordering so this would be a great thing! Yet when Ronald D. Moore appeared at SDCC and was signing, Icon Heroes told me that he would not be signing pre-orders. We'll find out when the sets start arriving.
