I just saw this Women of Mercury Patch on Space Center Houston's website. I was wondering if this version is a reproduction, authorized or not.

I believe the logo was created for the Mercury13.com website. Al Hallonquist (cS: albatron) is editor of that site and would know for sure.

Thanks for the heads up on this Rob and JBoe, we created that copyrighted image some time back, and we (the women and I) produced a very limited amount of patches. I have no idea where the seller obtained his two but I just asked.

As for the Space Center Houston webpage, Rhea Woltman, Sarah Ratley, Gene Nora Jesson and I will be on that panel next weekend.

Robert and Al, thanks again for the info! Al, your site is great! I really like the guestbook, the background on the women, and your purpose within the background.

On a separate note, I found that the link for the Jerry Cobb Foundation (within the Merchandise link) may have changed. It forwarded me to this site in Asian writing.

Ouch JBoe - thanks. Looks like a hack to her personal site completely. I shall let her know.

I did contact the seller, and he advises me he bought the patches at the Museum at Cape Canaveral. Certainly we support the museum so there won't be any issues but I'll contact them when I return.
