I stumbled across these different patch designs on eBay, I assume this is a Russian vendor but I'm not certain of that.

I've never seen these designs now, I assume they made them themselves?

These are unauthorized knockoffs of designs submitted as part of NASA's employee-only space shuttle commemorative patch design contact, which resulted in the selection of Blake Dumesnil's artwork representing the end of the space shuttle program.

Note: these designs are not in the public domain. As they were not chosen by NASA, the artwork remains the property of the original artists.

These patches are counterfeit, their sales are thefts, and should be avoided.

Good to know, thanks for the info!

I'm sure others have bought them while as ignorant of the design sources as I was before now.

I'm glad I didn't bid on any of them now.
