UPDATE: These are now completely sold out.

This listing is for a series of framed lunar surface-flown fabric swatches from Apollo 14. These were taken from a flag that was carried onboard the spacecraft by Stuart Roosa, on behalf of a family friend who owned Dos Arroyos Ranch.

In the near future, I'll be offering smaller pieces at a lower price (similar to the Beta Cloth displays I have for sale here). But I decided to keep the nicest segments intact in a much larger size, and frame them. I have three different options for sale, as follows:

First, there's the Dos Arroyos logo. This particular piece best matches the original display's text, so I paired them. And so in addition to the fabric, you'll get Roosa's original signature. The fabric measures approximately 4.75" wide and 3.5" tall.


Second, there's a version with the "APOLLO XIV" text, matted with an 8x10" photo and an engraved metal plaque. The fabric measures approximately 6" wide and 1.75" tall.


And third, there's a version with "THE MOON" text, matted with an 8x10" photo and an engraved metal plaque. This one is being sold at the lowest price, because I had to do a little patchwork at the bottom (the removal of the Dos Arroyos logo left a little gap under the "E"). I patched it using fabric from other parts of the flag, and it's almost seamless. But I did want to offer a discount here as a result. The fabric measures approximately 5" wide and 1.5" tall.


Each item will include a printed copy of my original Heritage invoice, along with photos showing the re-framing process and matching your item to the one sold by Heritage. For more photos and details, you can refer to this eBay listing. However, if you'd like to make a purchase, I strongly recommend sending an email through my collectSPACE profile instead, because the price will be much lower.

US Shipping is $35, which includes insurance and a signature on delivery. For non-US buyers, please contact for a shipping quote. Thank you for viewing this listing!

I received my Dos Arroyos Ranch flag fragment carried on Apollo 14 today. I was very pleasantly surprised at the quality of the display. It was very nicely done.

I purchased the 4" x 5" piece at a very reasonable price for a lunar surface item.

Edgar Mitchell kept copies of the entire A14 crew's PPK lists. I have copies of Stu Roosa's LM PPK list and the Dos Arroyos flag is listed on it as proof that Stu had it flown in the lunar surface.
