On each Apollo and Skylab mission, the astronauts wore on their space suits emblems printed on Beta cloth, a fireproof fabric developed after the Apollo 1 disaster. Some were also flown by astronauts as souvenirs. Some extras were made beyond ones actually flown on the missions, and these 1960s-70s originals make for excellent collectibles. They can also be signed by astronauts, or used in displays.

I have for sale Beta cloth patches from every Apollo and Skylab mission. Some are in pristine condition, in the 9-inch squares they were produced. Some were trimmed smaller by someone at some point, and as a bonus have staple holes in the corners (which would not show if matted as part of a display). I will price them accordingly, with some real bargains for rare items produced for NASA almost 50 years ago.

I will ship them flat between cardboard sheets for $5. If you buy more than $100 worth, I will include Priority Mail shipping.

Dimensions are given as width by height in inches. I will pop in a couple of sample photos, but if you'd like to see photos of any of them just let me know.
