I have a nice, rather rare print produced just months after the successful first two flights of the space shuttle. It has three patches attached to it (as it was designed to have): the two missions, and the one for the space shuttle program in general. This specific print came from the estate of Paul E. Gilsdorf, the vice president of sales and marketing for AB Emblem: the manufacturer of the patches.

This collectSPACE discussion from last year has a picture of an identical print, and more information about it than I knew thanks to a very detailed reply by Kevin T. Randall. He pointed out, for example, that the three patches appear to be first production run patches.

There was no glass on the piece when I got it, which is either a negative or a nice way to see the patches better.

Edit: SOLD I would like only $15 for it, plus another $20 for shipping in a good padded box. — Steve
