Mercury Spacecraft Art Patches

Project Mercury was NASA first major project toward putting an American on the moon. Seven astronauts were selected to undergo these missions to evaluate how human's performed in space. 
 
Each of the mercury spacecraft was adorned with unique artwork of various styling reflecting the astronaut's chosen name for their spacecraft. While some of the artwork was simple lettering, the more flourished artwork was painted by artist Cece Bibby. 
 
The "official" Mercury patches that have been in circulation for decades are a notoriously lackluster series of patches. Eventually a set of simple, round patches were produced that more faithfully reproduced the spacecraft's respective artwork, but this set is hard to find and has been out of production for a long time. 
 
Originally I had planned to augment that set with just two designs: "Delta 7" and "Freedom 7 II" fantasy patches for two missions that never came to be. While Deke Slayton's "Delta 7" artwork is purely fantasy, Shepard's second flight actually has artwork on the capsule at the National Air and Space Museum. 
 
To differentiate these patches from the other sets, I have designed to them to appear as they did on the corrugated metal skin of the spacecraft.   
 
 
You can purchase the eight patches as a set with or without the 20x16" decorative poster. I am not selling individual patches at this time.
