I'm certainly not interested in purchasing this item (300779980138) since it's well overpriced, but in the few years I've been following such items I've only come across the various AB Emblem crew patches (initialed and non-initialed) as the only ASTP mission embroidered patches that have flown.

While Stafford and the other crew members certainly may have brought some Lion Bros patches with them too, what does one think about this possibly just being an error on the part of Stafford (i.e. he got some of his unflown patches confused with others that had flown)? Has anyone encountered another example of a Lion Bros. ASTP patch as being flown on that mission or have any evidence (even anecdotal) of some of these patches having flown? I'm assuming of course that the item is genuinely from Stafford and wasn't tampered with.

I have an identical letter from Stafford in my collection (with the same date) which accompanied one of the TSP initialed AB patches.

All times are CT (US)
